You can’t miss the Biodynamic Land Trust at RHS Malvern
– look for the stunning Meiklejohn moving sculpture (video above) in the Grow Zone edible beds area, as you enter.
Sculptor and mechanical engineer, Simon Meiklejohn, has created the kinetic sculpture in the shape of a double helix. One moving sculpture will feature leaves and the other, moons.
The double helix symbolises the dynamics of life, and the biodynamic guiding belief that everything is connected.
Sunday 14 May 2017 12.30pm – 1 pm
Sebastian Parsons of the Biodynamic Land Trust is giving a talk on Biodynamic – The Dynamic Organic Way.
Sebastian says: “There is nothing like the great British gardening shows and RHS Malvern is one of the best. It is a thrill to introduce people to biodynamic gardening and community land ownership. We are graced with almost unbearably beautiful countryside in the UK, and our work is devoted to ensuring it remains a bounteous, living, working landscape.”
- The Biodynamic Land Trust is a charitable community benefit society, which secures UK land in trust for sustainable farming and gardening to create a living, working countryside. It promotes a uniquely holistic approach to organic agriculture, gardening, food and health.
- The Grow Zone is a horticultural experience by RHS Gold Medal winning gardener Jon Wheatley. Grow takes inspiration from interactive country gardens and wildflower borders, showcasing a variety of edible beds.
- The Edible Beds Area has been curated by RHS medal winner and RHS Malvern Spring Festival Ambassador, Hannah Genders. They are a collection of raised beds, planted with edible plants seeking to demonstrate the ease of growing your own.
- The Grow Zone promises to attract the crowds with a host of other exciting features including a Grow Tipi, where leading figures in the gardening world such as Carol Klein and Jekka McVicar will be on hand for a Q&A session.
