Gold Medal and People’s Choice for the CAMFED Garden at Chelsea Flower Show
Give Girls In Africa A Space To Grow
In 2019 I was privileged to be able to design a garden for an inspiring charity that is dear to my heart, the Campaign for Female Education.
Over 18 months I developed the design and oversaw the build at Chelsea.
I am thrilled that the garden was selected as The People’s Choice Award and won a prestigious Gold Medal.
The garden is now reinstated at the Eden Project Med Biome where it is open to the public as a walk through space, ensuring legacy.

A Big Help From Our Friends – Many Thanks
This garden would not be anywhere near as brilliant if it weren’t for the generosity of our cross-industry donators and collaborators. I would like to thank them personally for their support, not just financially, but in giving time and expertise along the way.
International Women’s day celebrates CAMFED’s achievements
It was great to see how International Women’s day, on 8th March, received extensive media coverage this year.
Great Ideas, Who’s Going to Build It
It’s all very well having the most exciting and interesting garden, but without a strong landscape team it simply won’t reach its full potential – these are the unsung heroes of show gardens.
We’ve Had An Upgrade
Delighted to announce that we have just been allocated a larger plot size of 10m x 10m for our Chelsea Flower Show garden, and have been relocated closer to Main Avenue – do come and visit us on RHW/289
Trip to Zimbabwe 2018
How can a designer put together a garden based on a place they haven’t been to? In order to design the CAMFED Garden I had to experience Africa for myself – the people, colours, sound, heat, vibrancy, plants and atmosphere.
A sneak preview into the vibrant and colourful CAMFED garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
To lift you out of the gloom of January, I thought you might like a sneak preview into the vibrant and colourful CAMFED garden.
Our medium sized plot will be packed full of energy and stories. It will be bright and colourful, positive and vibrant, as a direct response to my trip to Zimbabwe in 2018 and the inspirational people I met there.
