There’s a whole lot of gorgeous plants packed into one Living Room, coming to a city near you.

The TURAS Mobile Green Living Room (MGLR) is looking fantastic – an explosion of scent, colour and plants to provide insects with a veritable feast to choose from. In addition to flowers, kiwis and strawberries have been planted and the canopy is planned to start bearing fruit hopefully from this Autumn as the Green Living room begins on its tour of Europe…

Planting on the Green Living Room started already at the end of March 2016. First we filled the Lego type modules with the right soil for the plants to grow well. After that we carefully planted the different strawberries, herbs and many different perennials in the soil on top as well as in the vertical crevices. Finally in the last week of June on the hottest day of the year so far, all the finished modules were assembled together over a two day period.

And now on 4th July 2016, after 6 months planning and 3 months planting and construction, the Mobile Green Living Room is finally on the road and on its way to Bonn where it will be previewed tomorrow 5th of July at the 3rd Open European Day at Resilient Cities 2016. Come along and visit us in Bonn tomorrow and spend some time relaxing in our Green Livingroom…

Or join us at the end of August as we begin the official European tour taking in Frankfurt, London, Antwerp, Brussels, Lille, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Vienna…Not to be missed! Follow @Turas-cities to keep up to date with where we are going next.
