Rooftop Beehive at One Aldwych

In 2013, River of Flowers was awarded a Travelling Fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust to carry out research on growing wild and edible plants in the urban landscape in Chicago, Milwaukee, New York, San Francisco and Toronto. Supporters have since planted rivers of flowers for bees in these cities. 

River of Flowers was asked to exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018, and was awarded a Silver Medal for the Honeycomb Meadow Bee Garden, featuring wildflower meadows grown vertically across a wall and horizontally in hexagonal containers. 

Beside supporting urban bees and other pollinators, River of Flowers design team works with artists and scientists to devise biological solutions for environmental issues such as air pollution. For the Growing Health project, healing gardens were designed for patients in the Renal Dialysis Unit at York Hospital and the Oncology Unit at the Royal Free Hospital, London. In the forthcoming Planting Air project, moss will be used as a bio-indicator, and planting in streets and on rooftops promoted to improve city air.
