Trees of the Rebellion: Garden Bridge

Back in April, trees and plants of all shapes and sizes were transported to The Garden Bridge (Waterloo) for the week of International Rebellion. Their presence helped transform the bridge into the “friendly, vibrant and verdant” oasis it became for the thousands of rebels and visitors to the bridge.
