'FORGET YOU NOT GARDENS'
The purpose of a “Forget You Not” garden is to provide a welcoming place for anyone who wasn’t able to say a final goodbye to their loved ones.
This is a peaceful setting where thoughts and memories can be put to paper to share with loved ones lost and begin the healing process.
Wildlife is rapidly declining, particularly bees and butterflies, and therefore our gardens aim to support natural and wild habitat growth to support the preservation of these endangered species.
CASE STUDY 'INSPIRED BY LUCAS' - FORGET YOU NOT GARDEN
The video below showcases our recent work with Barnsley Crematorium and the family and friends of Lucas to create a garden that allows everyone to remember and say goodbye to loved ones, whatever the circumstances.
WILDLIFE PRESERVATION & MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
The garden concept incorporates both wildlife preservation as well as mental health support for the bereaved, inviting them to write down their feelings on our seeded paper and begin the healing process whilst simultaneously creating hope in preserving rapidly declining wildlife.
100% RECYCLED & BIODEGRADABLE
The seeds will be available to purchase from the reception area with a suggested donation and any surplus donated to a charity of choice. The posted letters are collected at regular intervals, stored securely by the gardener and prepared for germination into wildflower seeds within the garden. Birdfeeders, insect homes and tree logs can also be placed inside the garden, which could have woven living willow fencing.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED POSTBOX
The “Forget You Not” garden would strategically be placed within the grounds of a crematorium, with a special posting box situated where family and friends can post their own letters made from 100% recycled biodegradable wildflower seeded paper. The envelope can be printed with bespoke artwork tailored to geographical areas and points of interest.
REMEMBRANCE & PRESERVATION
Anything that can be done to alleviate this situation, however small, will make a difference. Whilst loved ones are being remembered, you are also helping to reverse this sad trend towards the decline and extinction of our precious wildlife.
