Volunteer Your Garden!
We are always looking for gardens to use as live student projects. We love to include a range of gardens from small town courtyards to large rural gardens. We always like to challenge our students with at least one sloping garden and try to include a public space so that students get the broadest possible range of experience and a varied portfolio on graduation.
Students will come on one site visit per garden and may need to take measurements at that time. They will be accompanied by at least one tutor. The garden owner does not need to be on site at that time if they do not wish.
Within two to three months each student will produce six pieces of work relating to your garden and their vision for a new design:
There is no expectation for you to build any of the designs - although many do get built and you may choose to select different elements from a range of students’ work. You will be invited to a final presentation with lunch at the school to see what is created for you and your garden.
In return we will ask you to complete a client questionnaire and ideally offer some feedback - this can be verbal in private after the presentation.
If you have any existing surveys, site plans or land registry documents relating to your garden, this is a real advantage.
