Join Nick Wray, Curator, University of Bristol Botanic Garden, for an in-depth look at the design and planting of the Ballast Seed Garden.

Wray has been the curator of plants for the Ballast Seed Garden since its inception, interpreting the artist Maria Theresa Alvez’s vision on an annual basis. He will introduce us to new species specially selected to mark Bristol: City of Learning during 2016 as well as to revisit a few old favourites such as the squirting cucumber.

 Seeds of Change: Floating Ballast Seed Garden brochure is available from Arnolfini. 

Located on Bristol’s historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city’s trade and maritime past.
