In March 2014, The Mobile Gardeners invited the public to plant up wild flowers around Elephant and Castle. The main sites were outdoors at Siobhan Davies Dance, Charlotte Sharman Primary School and Wansey Street Pocket Park.

In March volunteers gathered to sprinkle and sow wild flower seedlings in containers and in the ground. Come June, flowering, the plants were carried en mass in a choreographed event, devised by movement artist Simon Whitehead. The project wound to a close in the autumn with a talk by the Mobile Gardener’s held at their new planting station, with seed planting and sowing in preparation for next spring season’s bloom.
