RHS Tatton Flower Show; Growing Together Garden

Family Refugee Support Project was represented at 2012's prestigious event set in the ground of Tatton Park, with thanks to volunteer and landscape architect Emily Ross. Attendees and national media came far and wide to enjoy both the meaningful and aesthetic aspects of the Growing Together Garden, and was featured on the BBC1 show covering the event. 

Features include raised beds, a sandstone wall and a view of Liverpool’s skyline, taken from the our new garden in Toxteth. Flowing, brightly coloured lines symbolise families and the process of healing through horticulture. The garden reflects project themes such as moving from isolation into community, multiculturalism, and combining beauty and functionality. Families grow together and regain their strength through therapy and horticulture, putting down new roots. Inspiration came from seeing what is usually obscured from view: the lives of families seeking asylum, who are working to transform our little-known site in the middle of Toxteth into a haven of peace.
