Sentebale to feature at Chelsea Flower Show
18 November 2014

A garden inspired by the bright and vibrant atmosphere of children’s residential camps set up by Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale is to feature in next year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

Designer Matt Keightley is to create a garden for Sentebale dedicated to the Mamohato project in Lesotho which helps youngsters with HIV and Aids.

The garden will include a rock waterscape feature, said to represent the mountainous region of the southern African country. Sketches of the creation also show a hut and wooden walkways set among mature trees and abundant foliage.

Cathy Ferrier, chief executive of Sentebale, said: “Landscaper and designer Matt Keightley has created a truly inspirational garden that will be a representation of the experience that the children in Lesotho go through during our Mamohato camp.”

The Mamohato network and camps programme provides life-skills and psychosocial support to children living with HIV/Aids in Lesotho.

At the camps, sessions cover hygiene, nutrition and adherence to anti-retroviral therapy, as well as HIV-focused games, sports, arts, crafts and drama.

Mr Keightley said: “I am honoured to be working with Sentebale, the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community and Prince Harry on this year’s very special garden.”

He won the Silver-Gilt and the BBC RHS Chelsea Flower People’s Choice awards for his Hope on the Horizon garden for military charity Help for Heroes last year at his first Chelsea Flower Show.
