Have you ever wondered what happens to the thousands of plants that feature as part of RHS Chelsea Flower show? The Jetty on Greenwich Pennisula will soon be home to these flourishing species via Farmopolis which opens this weekend.
This floating garden will also present a pioneering curated food, arts and culture programme unlike no other in the capital. Saving the stars of the Chelsea Flower Show and rehoming them on the banks of the Thames, The Great Plant Rescue at Farmopolis will provide a much needed green oasis in the ever changing city of London. Farmopolis is driven by a unique partnership between Secret Productions, known for co-organising award winning creative festivals around the world; Wayward, the pioneering, art, design and farming practice, and Greenwich Peninsula, London’s largest regeneration project.
As the Official Reuse Partner to RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, The Great Plant Rescue at Farmopolis has salvaged tens of thousands of Chelsea’s plants, to create a truly unique floating garden surrounded by the iconic vistas of the Thames. Opening to the public from this Saturday, Farmopolis will be hosting a year round programme of live music, experiential supper clubs, literary salons, immersive theatre, creative workshops and talks, transforming the Jetty into a hub of creativity and wellbeing. Celebrating the opening on Saturday, all events will be unrestricted and open to all from 10am – 11pm.
