- RHS Chelsea Flower Show People's Choice Award 2023
- Silver-Gilt Medal
This award-winning show garden featured at the 2023 show and was a collaboration with the charity School Food Matters.
Core to the garden was putting children at the heart of our design. The garden is an immersive, forageable and naturalistic landscape where children can explore nature and be inspired by a diverse range of edible, climate-adapted plants. Paths are child-sized, allowing children to create their own imagined worlds as they meander through plants, scramble over boulders and journey past the raw elements of food production: tactile rammed earth walls, reflective water, flowers to attract pollinators and light-capturing grasses. Calming textural planting is intersected by bold, colourful ribbons of flowers, leading to a tranquil space where children can express their views on food and climate change through direct quotes painted on the central wall. All elements culminate in a show-stopping way and deliver a prominent message: nutritious food, a healthy planet and access to nature are fundamental rights that every child should enjoy. The garden was relocated and reimagined to create two school gardens - these are edible and sensory spaces at Alec Reed Academy in London and The Beaco Primary School in Liverpool.
