The Floating Garden

2023 – Ongoing

The Floating Garden is a canal-based gardening site that makes up part of the Growing Project. We created the Floating Garden in partnership with the Canal & River Trust to spread the positive benefits of The Growing Project out into the canal network and to use it as an engagement and learning tool with our various community groups and partners.

The structure of the garden has begun to enmesh itself with the surrounding ecosystem. The plants have crept over the straight edges of the structure and their roots have bulked and descended into the canal water below. These root structures and canopy cover create new, safe habitats for invertebrate and fish species whilst the structure above the surface acts as a safe refuge for water birds including, coots, moorhens, and herons.

You can visit the Floating Garden anytime at the Fazeley Street bridge.
