RHS community garden

A new community garden is being launched in association with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Grassroots non-profit Grow to Know has teamed up with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to create the first RHS Community Chelsea Garden.

The ‘Life Under the Westway Maxilla Gardens’ has been part-funded by the Mayor of London’s Future Neighbourhoods programme and the Westway Trust.

It will be see the transformation of the existing Maxilla Gardens in North Kensington, where Grow to Know was founded by Tayshan Hayden-Smith following the fire at Grenfell Tower.

“Following the detrimental impacts of the local injustice, the Grenfell Tower fire, the global pandemic and the current cost-of-living crisis, we wanted to create a safe sanctuary of real meaning to uplift the community of North Kensington – not just to survive, but to thrive and bloom, alongside nature and wildlife,” says Hayden-Smith, who is RHS ambassador for Young People and Communities.

The team behind the garden includes SuDS UK, Cameron Gardens, George King Architects and Wylie Wood.

The new garden will open to the local community in early June.
