Hadlow College won Best Show Garden and a prestigious Gold Medal at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show earlier in the summer. Their garden – Green Seam – celebrates and commemorates Betteshanger in Kent’s mining heritage. The College plans to recreate the garden in Betteshanger Sustainable Parks when it is completed.
Julia Holberry Associates have been appointed to write the Activity Plan for the Kent Mining Heritage Museum which will sit within the Betteshanger Sustainable Parks alongside the garden.
