Eden Project plans second show garden for RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Eden Project landscape designer Paul Stone has completed his initial plans for a second garden at next year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The Eden Project garden is being planned in partnership with the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA), Communities & Local Government (CLG) and charity Homeless Link.

The garden, called Places of Change, is being developed by homeless people across the country and has already drawn interest from around 40 homeless agencies keen to contribute to its creation.

Eden Project landscape designer Paul Stone has completed his plans for the 590sq m garden, which will feature zones such as crops and food, floristry and leisure, medicine and health, industry and manufacture, and conservation and the environment.

The partnership follows the silver medal-winning Key Garden at Chelsea in 2009, which saw collaboration from 20 homeless agencies and 200 homeless service users involved at all stages of the garden's development.
