Grow2Know at the Chelsea Flower Show 2022
Akwa Baby's 'Great Causes' partner, Grow2Know, is spreading its roots to The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 – with a unique garden design representing both social and climate injustices.
“Hands off Mangrove” garden is being presented on Royal Hospital Way at RHS Chelsea Flower Show between 24th – 28th May 2022.
To celebrate this incredible project, Grow2Know have produced a Limited Edition T-shirt, available to purchase via akwababy.com with all profits going directly to the organisation who build gardens 'to inspire, educate and heal whilst empowering more diverse communities through horticulture.'
About the Chelsea Flower Show "Hands off Mangrove" Garden:
Inspired by the events of Notting Hill’s Mangrove Nine in the 1970s and the global deforestation of mangroves, a keystone species that harbour entire estuarine communities, Hands Off Mangrove by Grow2Know aims to drive awareness of the severe impacts that racial and environmental injustices are having on our planet, at the Chelsea Flower Show.
A symbol of coexistence, (bio)diversity, and resilience, the garden is reflective of the community of Notting Hill, where the Mangrove Nine stood up in the face of adversity for their local restaurant – ‘The Mangrove’ – and inspired positive change for future generations.
