Mobile Meadow, fun project with plants

Join them to create a mobile meadow within the urban landscape of Elephant & Castle

Guerrilla Gardener Richard Reynolds, whose nocturnal gardening on public land without permission has led to him becoming an accidental activist, works with artist Simon Whitehead to create a mobile meadow made from over a hundred local people carrying their nurtured seedlings on a walk in order to plant wild flowers within the urban landscape of Elephant & Castle.

Members of the public are invited to grow wild flowers at home and return with these grown seedlings to join a mass choreographed walk and gathering.
