Sparsholt College has partnered with Help for Heroes for their double award-winning ‘The Force for Good’ garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018. The garden was awarded a Gold medal and Best Discovery Exhibit. It tells the powerful story of the role gardening plays in the recovery and ongoing support of injured British Armed Forces personnel and their families.

The garden is split into three sections: Surviving, Stability and Support. Sparsholt Horticulture students are collaborating with members of the Help for Heroes Gardening Club at Tedworth House to design and execute these key messages. The Force for Good garden also raises public awareness on health and well being by showcasing gardening as therapy.
