We were delighted to hear the news that our client Deborah Scott Anderson from Climate Gardens has been accepted by the Royal Horticultural Society to create an environmental conceptual garden at the Royal Hampton Court Flower Show this summer.
Near Future Garden
Designed by Arit Anderson 'Near Future Garden' conveys the effects of extreme weather patterns caused by climate change and encourages gardeners and show visitors to make the move towards a future of renewable energy, whilst keeping carbon in the ground.
The garden's motif is the (carbon) footprint, leading visitors along its paths between planting schemes of drought tolerant plants as one possible scenario of extreme weather. Wooden sculptures represent the powerful natural resources of sun, wind and water waiting to be harnessed as a positive alternative to heavy carbon use depicted by the vortex of 'black oil' at the centre.
