What Was On – 2020

Hellens Garden Festival is an event for people, plants and the planet – we work hard to create an atmosphere that is inclusive and inspiring, a space for sharing ideas, creative collaboration and to create change for a better, more sustainable world.

Our theme this year is ‘ Together, we are the Seeds of Change ‘

There has never been a more pertinent and critical time to reduce our individual carbon footprints and take action to avert climate catastrophe. If we can work together as communities creating change, the collective results will be incredible. We have had some fantastic conversations with innovators, gardeners and people wanting to make a difference – and wonderful, exciting plans are beginning to emerge!

Many of these events will now take place at Hellens Garden Festival 12th & 13th June 2021.
