Chelsea Flow Show 2019 – The Montessori Centenary Children’s Garden
Category: Award-Winning Gardens
In 2019, Jody designed the Montessori garden; in collaboration with the UK’s leading charity for Montessori education, Montessori St Nicholas. 2019 marked 100 years since Maria Montessori first bought her pioneering teaching methods to the UK, and the garden design brief aimed to reflect the fundamental principles that lie at the heart of her child-centric approach to education.
The water feature on the Montessori garden was particularly complicated and took a lot of ‘on-the-spot’ problem-solving. Thankfully it all came together in time for the show, and we were very proud and honoured to be credited by Jody for assisting him to achieve his first gold medal in his name.
