Greening grey Britain

As part of our continuing work with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Four Colman Getty was able to secure a plum piece of coverage in The Guardian for its director general, Sue Biggs. This came about following a meeting between Sue and the journalist in the picturesque setting of the RHS Royal Chelsea Flower Show.

Gardening can improve health, reduce stress and increase social interaction. As part of this, the RHS and Sue Biggs have begun a push to encourage the government to invest more in horticultural education, as a solution to a number of problems facing Britain today.

The Guardian coverage comes at a crucial time, with the RHS having launched their Greening Grey Britain campaign at the beginning of the summer. This campaign comes after their latest research showed that Britain has lost 15 square miles of green land over the past ten years, with more people than ever paving over their front gardens. The campaign aims to transform 6,000 grey spaces in the UK back into green ones and get Brits back into gardening.

Four Colman Getty continues to work with the RHS on their latest project and we were pleased to arrange a related Huffington Post piece for Sue to continue to spread the word.
