In 2014, River of Flowers grows even more wild in Bristol thanks to Artists Project Earth, which has funded the Wild City Project to develop a River of Flowers in three UK cities: Bristol, Manchester and York!
Artists Project Earth is a collective of artists, scientists, journalists, environmentalists, film makers and authors, who believe passionately in raising awareness about what climate change means to the world and in educating and helping people to overcome the obstacles to achieving a low carbon lifestyle. Greening the city is one way to do this. Plants cool, clean, soften and beautify the urban landscape and make it fit for people. Growing wildflowers and wild flowering trees makes it fit for pollinators.
The River of Flowers Bristol has partnered with the Green Play Project, which creates natural playscapes for children and Feed Bristol, a food growing scheme run by the forward-thinking Avon Wildlife Trust.
