If you’re still waiting on Garden Bridge, wondering when on earth it’s going to rear its leafy head, fear not. London is providing an excellent interim in the form of a massive floating garden! And what’s more…it’s recycled! In what is being dubbed by organisers as ‘The Great Plant Rescue’, tens of thousands of plants from the Chelsea Flower Show have been salvaged and re-homed to create a green waterside haven of 1,400sqm called Farmopolis.
And if plants alone don’t feed your soul enough to warrant a trip to Greenwich, Farmopolis will offer a summer programme of live music, supper clubs, literary salons, immersive theatre and even a cinema! The ambitious project also wants to create a festival space and host farm-to-table restaurants, with the site expected to have a capacity of 750 people. It opens on July 30, but you can get your tickets now. We’d suggest booking yours and keeping your fingers and toes crossed that your visit will coincide with some sun…
Farmopolis, The Jetty, Greenwich Peninsula. Mon-Fri 10am-10pm, Sat 10am-midnight, Sun 10am-11pm.
