Gardening Scotland -100 years of Rememberance.
Glen Art in partnership with the CWGC and The Wilfred Owen Association
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission, along with Glen Art and the Wilfred Owen Association have teamed up to create an incredibly poignant garden at this year’s Gardening Scotland to commemorate the CWGC’s centenary and that of Wilfred Owen’s stay at Craiglockhart in Edinburgh in 1917.
The ‘One Hundred Years of Remembrance’ garden is a first for the CWGC at the Gardening Scotland show and was designed by the Commission’s very own Gardener Caretaker First Class, Robert Ross and will be built and created by veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Glen Art.
Created by veterans of today, it commemorates the centenary of the CWGC who have practiced high quality horticulture around the world since 1917 and the centenary of the four months Wilfred Owen, poet of the Great War spent in Edinburgh from June 1917.
The garden will encapsulate the heart of the Commission and what it stands for – remembering the 1.7million people who lost their lives during both World Wars, across more than 150 countries.
