The Union Street Urban Orchard

This summer, the site of 100 Union Street in SE1 has been transformed into The Urban Orchard by The Architecture FoundationBankside Open Spaces TrustProjectARKs and the Wayward Plant Registry.  This urban orchard and community garden is the home to the LivingARK, a zero-carbon pod which is inhabited during the period of the project to showcase sustainable ways of living; The Nest, a pavilion created by the Finnish Institute; and a skip turned table tennis table created by Oliver Bishop-Young.

Heather Ring, director and head designer of the orchard asked me to contribute by displaying the Seed Pill project. Vanessa had the pleasure of spending Sunday July 4th conducting seed bomb workshops with fellow guerrilla gardeners Richard Reynolds (founder of guerrillagardening.org) and Darren Wilson (inventor of Kabloom seedbombs).
