The Girlguiding UK Centenary Garden

The Girlguiding UK Centenary Garden
Designer: Philippa Pearson / Contractor: Garden Care Supplies Ltd

Girlguiding UK members have worked with designer Philippa Pearson to create this garden that celebrates 100 years of Girlguiding UK. The plants and design highlight the elements that members say make Girlguiding UK a unique organisation. The tent-like tensile structure represents space for 'girl time'. The productive area featuring international and unusual vegetables, fruit and herbs signifies that guiding is open to all and actively encourages and supports diversity. Films of Girlguiding UK members taking part in a range of activities demonstrate that guiding continues to evolve to remain relevant today, and a turf landform chill out area for thinking and discussion represents allowing girls to have their opinions heard. The garden's entrance has been inspired by the original Crystal Palace exhibition centre in south London and references the Crystal Palace rally in 1909 where the organisation began. By the entrance, the garden features plants from 1909, planted in the style of Gertrude Jekyll. Other planting is bright, colourful and fun, with trees and shrubs chosen for year-round interest. A sunflower border includes plants grown by members from various guiding groups.
