Appearances, Royal Visit ♦ January 16, 2019

Today, (January 15, 2019) The Duchess of Cambridge visited the King Henry’s Walk Community Garden in Islington, London. King Henry’s Walk Community Garden is a voluntary led community garden containing growing plots for cultivation by local residents, where the use of organic gardening methods helps to promote a diversity of plants and wildlife, and a full programme of education and events to engage city children, young people and families. The Duchess visited the garden to see how the project brings people together through gardening and food growing. During the visit Catherine met with local residents to talk about their experiences in the garden. She then joined school children from St Jude and St Paul’s CE Primary School to make pizzas, using ingredients harvested from the garden, and bird boxes, one which will be showcased in her ‘Back To Nature” Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

News, Official Announcements ♦ January 16, 2019
This morning, before Catherine’s visit to King Henry’s Walk Garden it was announced that she has partnered up with Davies White Landscape Architects and the Royal Horticultural Society to co-design a garden for the Chelsea Flower Show in May and two further gardens for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival and the RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey which takes place in July, A press conference is scheduled for February 11, 2019, but there is no word yet on if The Duchess will attend. For more information, read the press release here.

To highlight the benefits of the great outdoors and inspire children, families and communities to get back to nature, The Duchess of Cambridge, the Royal Horticultural Society and landscape architects Davies White have today announced that they will design and build the 2019 RHS Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The garden will build on Her Royal Highness’s passion for the outdoors and the proven benefits that nature has on physical and mental health. The Duchess is a strong advocate for the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development, demonstrated by her longstanding support for organisations including the Scouts and Farms for City Children, as well as at more recent engagements to Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden, the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, and her visit today [15th January] to Islington Community Garden.

Based on a woodland, the garden seeks to recapture for adults the sense of wonder and magic that they enjoyed as children, in addition to kindling excitement and a passion for nature in future generations. Wild planting and natural materials will be used to recreate a woodland wilderness where children and adults alike can feel closer to the great outdoors.

Her Royal Highness has worked in collaboration with the RHS and Davies White over the past three months and will continue to finalise the design ahead of the show in May.

For over 200 years the RHS, which is the UK’s gardening charity, has been championing the power of gardening and growing plants for the environment, and for the health and wellbeing of people of all ages and backgrounds.
