Queens Wharf will bloom with colour this month with the launch of a pop-up flower village. A project of community creative agency Social Ritual (the folks behind Sunrise Yoga) with Panuku DevelopmentFor the Love of Bees, and Blossom and Wild, Village of Flowers is a seasonal space to celebrate the socially-unifying and abundant generosity of flowers.

From February to March the container village will come to life by the entrance of Queens Wharf with floral art installations, creative workshops and seedling and flower stem giveaways.

Village of Flowers will also become a satellite hub for For the Love of Bees, a collaborative art project that seeks to imagine Auckland as the safest city for bees on earth. The initiative will be on hand to share eco-friendly growing and buying advice.

Lunch time learning sessions will include floral illustration and watercolour painting workshops, and how to make seed balls. There will also be live music and regular plant giveaways. Visit the Village of Flowers event page for the full program.
