Our horticultural installations and project-based work

We’ve had the opportunity over the years to partner with a variety of organisations to design and create horticultural installations that bring people together in their creation, and inspire communities through their messages and outcomes.

Our four-part Sundial Gardens installation on Patmore Estate, which formed a part of the Chelsea Fringe in 2018, inspired children on the estate who participated in the planting, and gave an excuse for residents at different ends of the estate to come together for the launch party and get to know each other.

The following year as part of the Nine Elms Happy Streets Festival, we created a four-part Tea Trail across three estates, where visitors could explore and learn about medicinal plants that could provide healing properties for a wide range of ailments.

We will shortly be announcing the details of our big set-piece installation for 2020, which is currently top-secret, but will be taking place across housing estates in Bermondsey!

Across these projects, we have worked with local authorities, development companies, heritage societies, community and charity organisations, schools, housing management companies and local businesses. If you’ve got an idea for a horticultural installation, or if you’ve got a location and are in need of a professional team who can develop some inspiring ideas, get in touch with us at info@urbancanopy.org and we’ll have a chat about how we can help!
