A Common Ground

Tate Britain’s front lawns was transformed into a working garden led by artist collective Something & Son. The space was used as a community garden to welcome the public through a daily programme of activities and one-off special events. The plants, vegetables, herbs and flowers in the garden were chosen to reflect multicultural London today, and highlight the unexpected ancient origin of plants and how they’re used in modern-day cuisines. Free seed packets for visitors highlighted some of the plants used within the open pop-up garden. Seed stands initially designed by Tate Design Studio, with the help of Something & Son to develop and build based on the aesthetics of the garden. Tate Design Studio and Something & Son
