Grant-making charity Project Giving Back has announced that it will be supporting 15 gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024. Seven show gardens and two sanctuary gardens have been unveiled today, with a further six All About Plants gardens still to be announced.
All gardens supported by PGB, which launched in May 2021, are inspired by UK registered charitable organisations to raise awareness of their work. Each garden will be relocated after the show as a lasting legacy.
Hattie Ghaui, CEO of Project Giving Back, says: “It’s fantastic to be working with another group of talented and inspirational designers who are bringing the important work of so many good causes to life in 2024.
“Project Giving Back offers charities a valuable opportunity to exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and we know from experience that organisations can leverage huge benefits from this world-renowned platform. We can’t wait to see the 2024 gardens realised at the show before they’re repurposed in permanent sites across the UK for the benefit and enjoyment of local communities.”
The show and sanctuary gardens supported by Project Giving Back in 2024 are:
- Freedom From Torture Garden: Growing With Hope, designed by John Warland & Emma O’Connell
- Muscular Dystrophy UK Forest Bathing Garden, designed by Ula Mari
- National Autistic Society Garden, designed by Sophie Parmenter & Dido Milne
- National Garden Scheme Garden, designed by Tom Stuart-Smith
- St James’s Church Piccadilly ‘Imagine the world to be different’ Garden, designed by Robert Myers
- Stroke Association’s Garden for Recovery, designed by Miria Harris
- Terrence Higgins Trust Garden, designed by Matthew Childs
- WaterAid Garden, designed by Tom Massey & Je Ahn
- World Child Cancer’s Nurturing Garden, designed by Giulio Giorgi
Alex Denman, PGB Trustee and former show manager of RHS Chelsea, says: “RHS Chelsea has long been a show that inspires gardeners to think creatively, and sometimes differently, about the green spaces they nurture and enjoy. In recent years Project Giving Back has allowed a new wave of gardens for good causes to encourage conversation about issues such as biodiversity loss, climate change, mental and physical health and forced migration. I look forward to seeing the gardens PGB is supporting in 2024 and have no doubt they will spark further discourse about some of the most important issues facing our societies and our planet today and in the future.”
