Microbiome Garden: Our Participation At RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024

Microbiome Garden: Our Participation At RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024

Microbiome Garden Chelsea Flower Show

We’re very excited to announce we will be building a garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024, designed by @chrishullgardens and @sidhillecogardens and in partnership with @bowelresearchuk and @project.giving.back

The Bowel Research UK Microbiome Garden draws inspiration from medical and botanical research, exploring the fascinating connection between a healthy landscape, a healthy gut, and a healthy mind. It aims to inspire people to rewild their diets, gardens and their relationship with the land.

The garden focuses on the connection between the ecological health of a landscape and the health of our own gut flora. Informed by ancient cultures that have tended and harvested the landscape around them, we have designed a beautiful and diverse garden that harnesses edibles to improve both physical and mental health, using the gut microbiome as a catalyst.

The charity’s mission is to save and improve people’s lives funding cutting edge treatments for bowel disease by investing in pioneering research.

Here’s a look at progress from the building work…

Your Microbiome Explained

Your microbiome refers to the vast community of microorganisms that reside in and on your body, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other tiny organisms. These microbes play crucial roles in various bodily functions, such as digestion, immune system regulation, and even mood regulation. Your microbiome is incredibly diverse and unique, influenced by factors like genetics, diet, lifestyle, and environment.

Microbiome & The Landscape Around You

The connection between your microbiome and the landscape around you lies in the constant interaction between your body and the environment. The microbes in your microbiome are not isolated entities but are constantly influenced by the external world. For example, the food you eat, the air you breathe, and the surfaces you touch all introduce new microbes to your body and affect the composition of your microbiome. Likewise, your microbiome can also influence the environment around you by releasing certain compounds or interacting with other organisms. This interconnectedness highlights the intricate relationship between human health, environmental health, and the microbial world.
