Urban Orchard Final Weeks

Public Presentation:
Weds 15 Sept 2010 7.00pm

Join us at the Union Street Urban Orchard for the final days of summer.

After a packed programme of events and workshops the Union Street Urban Orchard is coming to a close. To celebrate the dismantling of The Union Street Urban Orchard, The Architecture Foundation will be running a series of creative reuse workshops allowing members of the public to create useful objects from the left over Orchard pallets. Under the supervision of young designers and carpenters people can get creative building their own chairs, plant boxes, bird boxes, board games and the like from recycled materials. All elements created can be taken away on the day!

The Make and Take workshops will be the final events held in the Orchard and will signal the end of this beautiful temporary project. 

Workshops take place throughout Saturday and Sunday 12noon - 5pm with a BBQ on Saturday 18th September from 5pm - 10pm. To take part click here.

On Saturday 11 September there's the Harvest Party from 3pm to 9pm. Come on down and enjoy the BBQ, pick the fruit and adopt a plant.

In addition, the catalogue for the European Prize for Urban Public Space will be launched to a UK audience on Thursday 16 September from 5.30pm - 7pm.

The Union Street Urban Orchard was created for the London Festival Architecture 2010 transforming the site of 100 Union Street in SE1 into an urban orchard and community garden.
