House of Wayward Plants: Adoption Stand

Client: Royal Horticulture Society, National Trust and Barking Riverside
Site: Chelsea Flower Show 2019 (and beyond)
Designer: Wayward
Fabricator: Studio Mata
 

The plant adoption stand was designed for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Discovery Zone as a platform to share with the public the House of Wayward Plants reuse scheme that rehomes thousands of plants, trees and tonnes of materials each year to hundreds of community green spaces across London. As the Official Reuse Partner of the RHS Shows, we work with volunteers to create meaningful legacies for the show gardens and their incredible plants. The stand included an invitation to the public to adopt plants, the introduction of "Chelsea's Children," the cuttings we take of plants to grow more - and a small exhibition of the reuse story and its partners to date. The stand will travel to Hampton Court Palace and across London in a series of events with the National Trust to engage the public around plant adoptions and the reuse initiative - and form part of the recycle-reuse centre at Morden Hall Park (as a complementary structure to the Smithfield Greenhouse at Smithfield Rotunda Garden.)
