Edible Utopia: Launch Event

Wed 21 Mar 2018
12.30 - 13.30

To celebrate the public launch of the Edible Utopia project join us for the ceremonial planting of Rhubarb on the roof of the old HMRC conference centre.

Edible Utopia at Somerset House is a project looking at nurturing sustainable produce in some of the buildings hidden and overlooked locations using the historic idiosyncrasies of the architecture to create new possibilities.

For this special launch event we will be welcoming rhubarb to the building which will populate the roof of the old conference centre. Attendees will be invited to get hands on with the planting alongside a unique choral serenade from onsite residents lead by composer Alex Etchart, devised to celebrate the arrival of the rhubarb and the Spring season at 13:15. Accompanying the public planting there will be seasonal refreshments and an opportunity to sign up for future involvement in the project.
