Three of our fabulous Stand-Up Southwark graduates represented our community garden project, Stand-Up Garden, at the glamorous launch of Europe’s highest garden at The Shard! 07/06/2016
Consummate professionals that they are, our young graduates braved early-morning wind and rain take part in filming on the top floor of The Shard and were interviewed by London Live! In partnership with Grow Wild, who fund our Stand-Up Garden project, the event helped raise awareness of the importance of protecting the UK’s wild flowers. The event also featured Claudia Winklemann, of Strictly Come Dancing, who officially opened Europe’s highest garden, 800ft above London on the viewing deck of The Shard.

Our three graduates are also project leads on our community gardening project, our Stand-Up Garden, where they are managing a summer-long regeneration project for Cambridge House’s neglected front garden. Supported by Grow Wild, the UK’s largest wildflower campaign, the project will transform our garden into an inclusive wildflower and edible garden. The project brings together our youth programme, Stand-Up, and 19Plus, our arts and social group for adults with a learning disability. Together they will design and lead the transformation of the garden, creating mosaics and an inclusive sensory zone for users with learning and/or other disabilities.
