The Chelsea Flower Show is the most prestigious gardening show of the year. I was fortunate enough to design and be involved with this small community garden build with my allotment group in 2001.
The design was about show casing allotment growing and was entitled, 'Looks good enough to eat',
We were able to show the range of wonderful produce allotment growers produced on their plot. The copper water feature and seat were made by local art students from Kingshurst Academy and all the plants and veg were grown at Manor House Rd allotments in Birmingham. It was a project which took 9 months to pull together on a very tight budget but we held our own against the Chelsea big guns and came home with a silver gilt medal!
