We’ve been lucky enough to help out on this fantastic new project ‘Near Future Garden’ by long term WATB friend Deborah Scott Anderson, founder of Climate Gardens.

Near Future Garden is a Conceptual Garden at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2016 from July 5th to 10th 2016. This environmental garden conveys the importance of using earth’s natural elements to ensure a low carbon future. Inspirational garden design has the potential to impact on its audience and Near Future Garden aims to influence the carbon footprint of 146,000 visitors to RHS Hampton 2016

Over the past few months NFG has been painting some inspirational feet with bright orange paint!

Near Future Garden is collecting the footprints of famous Climate Champions who share their vision for a low carbon future. These personal footprints have been made into wooden versions from a sustainably harvested oak tree and will feature on the Carbon Path of Near Future Garden at RHS Hampton Court 2016. WATB have helped the cause by designing and creating the banners to represent each footprint donated. Take a look below at some of the footprints so far:
