The Mind Garden officially opened at Barrow in Furness
Following its move from the 2022 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Mind in Furness garden was officially opened last week. Bulbs are blooming and everything is beginning to establish at the new garden that has been adapted to suit its new location and visitors. The garden has been redesigned so that the curved walls have been re-imagined as hedges, the whole space is fully accessible and there are areas where people can get their hands dirty doing some gardening themselves.
This garden was always designed to highlight the benefits of being in nature for wellbeing and mental health. It is great to see the garden at a permanent location where many people may benefit from visiting it. What was once an abandoned space in the middle of the town, now offers a green lung to the people who live there.
Andy says: “I am really proud to have been part of this. Seeing the garden recreated in a place where it will get used by so many people is incredibly rewarding and is why I agreed to be part of this process from the outset.”
