As part of Festival of Nature, you can take a boat tour to see the Floating Ballast Seed Garden to hear about its eco-design and the plants that inhabit it.
Join us for an introduction and welcome to the Floating Ballast Seed Garden artwork from Tom Trevor, Director at Arnolfini. Tom will discuss the concept behind the work with an opportunity to explore the garden.
Working with Brazilian artist Maria Thereza Alves, designer Gitta Gschwendtner and the University of Bristol Botanic Garden, Arnolfini has utilised a disused grain barge to create a Ballast Seed Garden on Bristol’s Floating Harbour.
