We are thrilled and proud that our urban rooftop garden has won two prestigious prizes: “Outstanding” in the “It’s Your Neighbourhood” RHS Britain in Bloom awards and Gold in the “Our Community” category in London in Bloom.
It was a competitive process with more than 300 of the best horticulturists from across the London boroughs contending for the grand prizes.
The awards recognise the individuals and community groups who do most to improve the natural environment and make London a brighter place by keeping the capital blooming.
The judges had glowing praise for our rooftop garden, noting that it’s “a shining example of what could be done on many rooftops all over London and beyond.”
We were just blown away by the judges’ admiration for our urban haven. Here is a small selection of their comments:
“….everyone is working together for a more sustainable community and to enrich the lives of all…”
“Your gardens are an oasis of calm… and you bring a tranquillity to the many lives you touch, giving purpose and meaningful experiences to your clients.”
“Horticulturally, I find it almost impossible to find any fault. The rooftop is crammed with tasty vegetables and ripening fruits.”
“…much help and funding has been raised through the input of Corporate Volunteers.”
“The garden continues to supply food to Providence Row’s kitchen and catering…”
Congratulations to Julie, our head gardener, and our gardening team! As the judges aptly observed, we are in awe of your energy and enthusiasm.
Thank you for making such a difference to our clients’ lives.
