Vertical Farm


Thursday 27th July – entry 12:00

Square Miles Farms create beautiful spaces that enrich the lives of city dwellers, providing them the incredible physical and mental well-being benefits of plants and whilst promoting a more sustainable agricultural system.

During your visit you will have the opportunity to learn about urban farming, and to harvest your own herbs/veg from an indoor vertical farm, which you can then take home for dinner! Members of the Square Mile Farms team will be there to answer any questions you might have, and to guide you through the harvesting process.

Bench at Kew Gardens

There is so much to see and do on a visit to Kew Gardens. Take a mindful moment in the tranquil Japanese gardens, a delicately manicured landscape designed to complement the Chokushi-Mon (Japanese Gateway). Feast your senses on the rich, colourful borders – a striking walkway into the heart of Kew. Temperate House – discover rare and endangered plants in the world’s largest Victorian glasshouse.
