whilst on a train commute down south and above street level we caught a fleeting glimpse of the urban orchard. during the london festival of architecture and beyond, the site of 100 union street in se1 will be transformed into an urban orchard and community garden.
during the bankside 'urban forest focus' weekend on 3-4 July the wayward plant registry will run a plant adoption and exchange programme. there will also be a livingark plus a series of workshops and discussions focusing on biodiversity and urban food growing. in september the garden will be dismantled and all the trees will be given to local estates and other community gardens to remain as a lasting legacy of the 2010 london festival of architecture.
