National Forest

Show Gardens
Following the success of a gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the Meta Garden: ‘Growing the Future’ garden was generously donated to the National Forest in Derbyshire by Meta.
Following a few design alterations, the entire garden has been re-homed to the Conkers Discovery Centre in the heart of the forest where it can be enjoyed by visitors.
Volunteer groups have been involved in the planting and aftercare whilst the construction was meticulously performed by The Landscaping Consultants, the same team who built the garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, and who were an integral part of the research and development of the ‘no concrete’ approach to the project as a whole.
The fungi-inspired pavilion was designed in collaboration with architect-designer Farshad Khazei, the team at Banati-Hartvig and the fabrication by Sa-Fa Design, based in Budapest.
