Looking for a home
Making lives better
Stamford Hill's 'peace and wellbeing' garden has been a haven for residents at this estate for the past two years. Originally designed by resident Sarah Warman in collaboration with Groundwork London, the garden has seen a recent upgrade, courtesy of the Chelsea Flower Show, that has already gotten rave reviews from residents.
The plants and flowers used were all donated from financial services firm Morgan Stanley, who sponsored an award-winning garden from this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Morgan Stanley partnered with Groundwork London not only to donate the plants used to residents of Stamford Hill, but to also lend a hand with planting and landscaping the new garden on the estate.
The original garden won the People’s Choice award at the Chelsea Flower Show and was designed by gardener and TV presenter Chris Beardshaw, best known for his work on BBC’s Gardener’s World.
The planting day and launch of the improved garden took place earlier this month and saw volunteers from Morgan Stanley join forces with residents, Group colleagues, and gardening specialists from Groundwork to bring the new garden to life.
Groundwork London are part of a national charity that works with local communities to create greener, more sustainable places to live, and the Group has worked with them on various projects to help improve communities for our customers.
