A pioneering skateable and edible garden from Chelsea Flower Show has been donated to Hereford Skatepark, which recently reopened following a massive expansion funded by Stronger Hereford.\

Our community skatepark will continue the legacy of the garden and create a pilot for broader adoption nationwide. It will promote physical activity, healthy eating, connection with the natural environment and positive social space.

Designed by Urban Organic and Betongpark in partnership with UK CIC Planet Good Earth, the Planet Good Earth Garden is a pioneering skateable and edible garden that links skateboarding and community gardening to support mental health and promote environmental action. Scooping a bronze medal, the garden also featured in the Top 10 gardens as named by The RHS, The Telegraph, the Week and Gardeners World Magazine, and it was cited as the most ‘intriguing concept of the entire show’ by The Times.

With a focus on building outdoor learning experiences, this groundbreaking garden shows how skateboarding and horticulture can contribute to green initiatives and healthier urban landscapes. It demonstrates how growing and recreation can work together to positively impact youth communities. Functioning as an educational haven, this vibrant space boasts edible planting, offering an immersive, productive, and wildlife-friendly environment.
