The Future

The present Garden had a planned three-year lifespan. In 2011 the intention was that the site would be revised to become a permanent garden for use by local people, travellers on the new Docklands Light Railway nearby, and those attending the 2012 Olympic Games. However the Harvest Garden has proved so popular that to date the current plan is for it to remain in place for another few seasons. The artists Karen Guthrie & Nina Pope have drafted a design for a permanent final garden but will review What Will the Harvest Be? before this is finalised: it is hoped a considerable area for vegetable and flower cultivation will be included as well as exemplary architecture for community use and ecologically-sustainable technologies for energy and water.
