Chelsea, London UK
Prisoners and homeless people have designed and constructed the largest garden ever built at Chelsea Flower Show. The 6,000 square foot garden is constructed from recycled bottles, old washing machines and donated trees. Up to 50 homelessness charities have taken part, with more than 75 people working on the site at a time. All have received vocational training in woodwork, planting and other horticultural skills that they can use to get employment in the future.
