About us: how we are growing!
The River of Flowers Story above explains how your organisation could start a River of Flowers in your city and help to 'feed the bees that feed us'!
The Savoy, an iconic hotel in Central London, and part of the world wide Fairmont Hotels & Resorts group, is hosting a special Wildflower Afternoon Tea as part of their 125th Anniversary celebrations, and has partnered with River of Flowers to initiate a River of Flowers Central London, which connects the organisations on the North and South Embankments of the Thames growing bee-friendly and wild forage and habitat for bees and other pollinators. The trail is captured in a Wildflower Walk aimed at inspiring other local organisations and visitors to grow wild!
You can download a map of this Wildflower Walk to guide you along the pollinator flight path of delectable floral forage to be found blooming at the local parks, gardens and street gardens of Central London including the Garden Museum, Victoria Embankment Gardens, Inner Temple Gardens, Tate Modern, Bankside Urban Forest, Bernie Spain Gardens, Southbank Centre, Jubliee Gardens, Archbishop Park and Victoria Tower Gardens., see our events page here: Wildflower Afternoon Tea at The Savoy
You will be able to explore an aspect of Central London that you might not have seen before - one taken from the perspective of a bee. Of course, there will be places along the route of the River of Flowers Central London, which only bees can visit, such as rooftop honeybee hives and wild bee hotels!
River of Flowers Central London joins the other new Rivers of Flowers in Bristol, London, Manchester and York, which started in 2014.
THANKS TO EVERYONE MAKING THE CITY A BETTER PLACE FOR POLLINATORS, PLANTS AND PEOPLE!
