Helsinki Plant Tram is a participatory project that includes an urban action on a tram which utilises the city’s local transport network and an imaginative urban garden built from plants donated by passengers.
The project has been commissioned by the British Council and has been designed and produced by London-based landscape practice Wayward Plants, in collaboration with the local environmental organisation, Dodo.
The Plant Tram Urban Action will take passengers on a journey to celebrate urban growing in Helsinki and to strengthen the network of growing spaces throughout the city. In partnership with Culture Tram and their mobile exhibition and performance platform, the Urban Action utilises the local tram network to create a mobile garden that journeys through the city of Helsinki to pick up passengers bringing donated plants. Potential growing spaces will be mapped out along the route, strengthening the network of growing spaces in Helsinki.
