About us: how we are growing!

River of Flowers  designs safe routes through cities for bees and other pollinators by creating floral forage trails or ‘rivers’ of wildflowers and wild flowering trees through urban landscapes.

We are taking a new direction in 2016! Come with us on our exciting new journey as we:

LIAISE with new partners including Bee Bristol, Buglife, Get Bristol Buzzing, Manchester Galleries Partnership and Urban Buzz to create more urban foraging gardens. Is your city on the River of Flowers Map? To get your city regsitered as a River of Flowers city, we need the location of at least one public place where wild plants already grow.

COMMUNICATE our ideas more effectively by working with artists and designers on installations, which bring art, science and urban ecology together in a way that resonates with people, River of Flowers has designed floral and verdant patchworks of hexagonal and triangular planters full of specific wild nectar and larval food plants, living installations that can flow over city squares and open spaces such as the Honeycomb Meadow project developed with BeeBristol to provide more wildflower forage in barren city spaces.

Do Trees Talk (and if so, do they talk to bees)?

Are trees the strong, silent type or is there a lot of forest chatter going on? We will be exploring the idea that trees not only communicate with one another above and below ground but are also in dialogue with insects including bees.
