Community garden at Gardener’s World Live

In 2002, I was fortunate to be part of a community team that created an award winning garden for Gardeners’ World Live. The Savage Garden was a community created garden that showcased copper sculpture artworks, created by local children and young people under the tuition of artist Richard Taylor, at CARAD in Mid Wales. The project was initiated and led by Richard. Following the exhibit at Gardeners’ World Live, The Savage Garden was returned to and rebuilt in Rhayader as a permanent feature on a vacated commercial site in the town.
