Mind’s garden at the Chelsea Flower show will reach a huge number of people. The garden is designed to be the kind of place where people can connect, be themselves and open up about difficult emotions. It will inspire and spark conversations about mental health, breaking down the stigma, which sadly still exists. The theme of the garden will also inspire us to connect with those around us and seek help, highlighting the value of peer support for our mental health.
The concept is a series of sculptural walls that flow down through the garden like a handful of petals tossed onto the ground. Rendered in clay and highly textural they are meant to be highly tactile and of the earth.
The garden is largely set amongst open woodland with generous areas of meadow planting at the woodland edge and marginals to enclose the pool. It is intended to be dramatic yet tranquil and beautiful.
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.
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
The garden will inspire many visitors to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to take the time to be there for each other – before sections of the garden are transported to community organisations across England and Wales so conversations can continue for many years to come.
