Funded by donations and crowdfunding Calm Amidst Chaos highlights the importance of creating peace and tranquillity in our lives to enable us to better deal with the inevitable ‘downs’ that befall us. The garden expresses the contrast we can feel within ourselves; The effects of the chaotic and sometimes overwhelming physical world, and that inner sense of peace which can help us overcome the challenges our daily lives can throw at us.

Joe says “Life can feel like a crazy, chaotic experience that stretches us to our limits, so it’s no wonder that in today’s society we are facing an epidemic of mental health challenges.”

The garden is dedicated to the Maytree charity and The Gardens For Good team aim to take parts of the show garden to Maytree house once the show is over. Maytree House provides a unique residential service for people
in suicidal crisis.
