Growing the Future is designed to highlight the benefits of increasing the UK’s tree cover to help combat the changing climate, ensure biodiversity, and leave a flourishing legacy for future generations. It's a tactile garden made of timber, with a naturalistic planting palette and a contemporary and comfortable atmosphere inspired by the British countryside.
It features a rolling meadow, a woodland bank in the form of a planted timber crib wall, and rising beyond, a woodland edge of trees and shrubs that overhang a freeform timber canopy and deck. It champions timber, both as a versatile and beautiful material and as a vital part of the response to the changing climate. The garden also celebrates the people and organisations using Facebook to come together and encourage sustainable woodlands and highlights the value Facebook Groups can bring when people come together to enjoy, create and maintain woodland and green spaces.
