Climate Gardens received the higest RHS medal for Climate Change Garden
This Conceptual Garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2016 was inspired by Climate Gardens and communicated the importance of adapting to climate change in order to create a low carbon future .
Near Future Garden attracted 10,000 visitors over 6 days to walk on a Carbon Path surrounding the vortex of "oil" to experience key climate change messages about a low carbon future using renewable energies.
Famous Climate Champions such as Jon Snow of Channel 4 News and Sir Tim Smit of Eden Project donated their footprints to this Carbon Path confirming their belief that climate change is a collective problem requiring serious commitment to a low carbon future.
Three renewable energy structures depicting wind, water and sun inspired a sustainable low carbon future and climate positivity for visitors to RHS Hampton Court Flower Show from 5th to 10th July 2016.
Monty Don, Joe Swift and the BBCTV team visited Near Future Garden to deliver a 9 minute feature highlighting the climate change concepts and key design elements of the garden. This was seen by 1.2 million viewers.
