Green & Black's Rainforest Garden
Green & Black's Rainforest Garden
Designers: Jane Owen - Ann-Marie Powell

This garden is a first for Chelsea; it conjures up a rainforest family home and has been made, in part, by Cameroonian indigenous women who want to raise awareness about the threats that they and the rainforest are facing. The garden has its roots in the 18th century British tradition of narrative gardens, which expressed all kinds of stories from the political to the personal. The story of this garden is about changes that hunter gatherers are making as their hunting grounds are being destroyed by illegal logging, mining and bush meat hunting. Roughly cleared productive plots planted, like this one, with crops like maize and cassava are one of the ways that indigenous communities now provide food for themselves.
