Rest to Follow Your Path: A Wellbeing Garden
Designed by Downing College, awarded Platinum
Marking the creation of the new wellbeing centre; this show garden highlights how gardens are integral spaces for finding sanctuary, inspiration and positive mental and physical health. It will become a permanent feature at Downing College, where students can use it for rest and wellbeing meetings.
The garden contains elements of Downing College’s tranquil rose garden, where students escape to study and reflect. Snapshots of the bright tropical border illustrate how a beautiful space can make us smile, expand our minds and strengthen our relationship with the wider world. The need for a system of mutual support to thrive and achieve wellness is reinforced by the presence of bees.
