In 2014 I organised a garden design project with Simon Langton Girls Grammar School and ran a series of planning workshops in which students designed the layout of a public Physic Garden in the Westgate Gardens, Canterbury.

I ran a number of sessions at the school as part of the students’ enrichment time in which they learnt about the medicinal uses of plants and inputted to the layout of the garden.

The students were then involved with a number of planting sessions working in partnership with the Friends of Westgate Parks volunteer team.

To fit in with the Roman heritage of the Park we then developed an additional interpretation project and sourced the materials for the students to design and make mosaics which were mounted on each of the 8 beds.
