Grow2Know, a non-profit community interest company born in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, made its RHS Chelsea Flower Show debut in May 2022 with a garden designed by Grow2Know founders Tayshan Hayden-Smith and Danny Clarke. Inspired by the real-life story of the Mangrove Nine, a group of social activists in 1970s Notting Hill, and the destruction of Mangrove forests, the "Hands Off Mangrove by Grow2Know" garden raises awareness of the profound impact that social and environmental injustice can have on local communities, and the wider world.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Grow2Know’s heart lies in reclaiming space and reconnecting people with nature and each other. Putting community at the forefront in the creation of public, outdoor spaces, Grow2Know is pioneering a model that pivots on consultation, collaboration, and place-making.
Building partnerships to activate spaces, the grassroots non-profit is committed to inspiring a culture change to implement more sustainable systems that promote biodiversity, circular economies and regenerative practices. Grow2Know is on a mission to inspire, heal and educate through horticulture - embarking on a journey to make gardening more inclusive and nature accessible to all.
The team is currently consulting with local residents on the final plans for the relocated garden to ensure it meets their needs and aspirations and is working with Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea to finalise planning permission and secure additional funding to create the new community garden.
"The garden represents two relevant and powerful messages - one of social injustice and the other of climate injustice - of which both shine a light on the harsh realities of our past, present and future, to evoke urgent action to create a better world for future generations. We aspired to break down barriers and encourage diversity across the gardening world by planting a seed of change." - Danny Clarke, Director, Grow2Know
