A Journey, in collaboration with Sue Ryder

Global Impact Gardens

A Journey tells a story about the range of thoughts and emotions that we confront when experiencing grief, and is designed to encourage conversation with the aim of supporting those who are grieving and the people close to them.

A winding path inset with oak cobbles leads you through a transitioning planting palette – from life as normal through shock, disbelief and all-consuming grief. As you exit the garden, the weathered oak posts that gradually rose and encircled you are still there, but now they intersect and entwine as new life grows around them. There is no defined finish – grief can be a lifelong journey, and everybody’s path is different.

Thanks to the following companies for their support: Creepers Nursery, Allgreen Group and Artisans of Devizes.
