Future Gardens, Butterfly World, St Albans
Location: St Albans
Client: Butterfly World
Style: Show Garden
Project: Show Gardens, Visitor Attraction
Future Gardens was the launch-pad of phase one of the Butterfly World Project in St. Albans, with the aim of promoting ideas of conservation, sustainability and preservation of green spaces.
Our design, ‘Narratives of Nature’, was based on the concept of foraging and growing your own food and featured many naturally occurring edible plants found amongst UK hedgerows and woodlands. Original poetry written for this theme and interspersed throughout the space, leading visitors on a physical and mental journey of discovery. Edible plants such as brambles, wild ginger and wild strawberries were featured, and a log wall offered places for mushrooms to grow as well as for invertebrates to find shelter.
