Zoflora and Caudwell Children's Wild Garden

Designed by garden designers Adam White & Andrée Davies. This garden highlights the beneficial qualities of a therapeutic garden for children with various disabilities, in particular Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Playful and edible planting, wild grassy mounds, tree-top nests, a huge spinning boulder, hidden Zoflora woodland scent pots, a secret mushroom cave, a giant hollow oak log and opportunities to play and explore with water are all on offer.

A number of secluded spaces within the garden offer somewhere safe to relax – a key feature in designing spaces for children with ASD.

Following the show, the garden will be reimagined at the Caudwell International Children’s Centre at Keele University, which provides multi-disciplinary support for children with developmental disorders.
