A team of service users, volunteers and staff from Petrus homeless charity, have co-designed the ‘Journey Home’ garden which will be exhibited at the RHS Tatton Flower Show this year.
The garden portrays everyone’s individual journey to closing their own front door – whether it’s at the end of the day or through the challenges of homelessness.
The garden also aims to provoke conversations on therapeutic horticulture and green social prescribing, both of which are available at Petrus’ community allotment, PIER in Rochdale.
The ‘Journey Home’ garden focuses on reconnecting with nature and on activities that support health and wellbeing. It considers green corridors, materials we use and the physical ways we can live in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way.
Attendance at the Tatton Flower show is made possible by Petrus’ supporters including M&Y Maintenance and Construction as this year’s garden sponsor.
