We’re delighted to have the support of a wide range of people and organisations who share our passion for gardens and who want to get as many people as possible celebrating Garden Day on Sunday 12 May 2019.
If you’re interested in supporting, please contact [email protected].
POPPY JAMIE, WELL-BEING ENTREPRENEUR & FOUNDER OF HAPPY NOT PERFECT
“I’m supporting Garden Day because I’m completely passionate about what the day represents, enjoying spending time outside with friends and family. I think these things are so important and directly impact our happiness and wellbeing.”
NATALIE RUSHDIE, JAZZ SINGER
"I’m supporting Garden Day because I believe being outside in our gardens is great for our mental health and wellbeing. I find it calming to be in my garden, growing my own vegetable and herbs, and hope Garden Day will help inspire others to get outside and enjoy their gardens too."
MICHAEL PERRY, “HORTPRENEUR” AND GARDENING EXPERT, MR PLANT GEEK
“I’ve loved being outside ever since I was a child. Interacting with nature is so good for us, yet many people find it easier to laze indoors. I am supporting Garden Day because I want to change that. There are so many benefits to getting outside, learning about plants and spending time with family and friends. You don’t even have to have your own garden to enjoy the benefits!”
ARIT ANDERSON, GARDEN DESIGNER, WRITER & PRESENTER
“I’m supporting Garden Day to encourage people to sit back and enjoy the virtues of their hard work. So often we are ‘doing’ rather than just ‘being’ in the garden. Being in nature, amongst plants and wildlife offers great benefits to our physical and mental wellbeing.”
STEVE HORRELL, EXECUTIVE CHEF AT ROTH BAR & GRILL
“I think we should all spend more time outdoors, enjoying and being inspired by our gardens. That’s why I’m supporting Garden Day.”
SABRINA GHAYOUR, CHEF, COOKERY TEACHER & AUTHOR
“I’m supporting Garden Day because it’s a wonderful initiative that encourages us all to embrace the beauty of our gardens up and down the country.”
JEKKA MCVICAR, VMH - PROPRIETOR OF JEKKA’S, AN ORGANIC GROWER OF HERBS, HORTICULTURAL AUTHOR AND BROADCASTER
"I support Garden Day because I want to share my passion for plants and gardens. Once you fall in love with gardening and sow that seed, it is for life."
