Modern Slavery Garden preview at Chelsea Physic Garden
Modern Slavery Rose
Modern Slavery Rose (Dicpowwow) featuring in the Modern Slavery Garden at Chelsea 2016.
"The Modern Slavery Garden has been designed by Juliet Sargeant (photo, right) for The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, 2016. The Modern Slavery Rose has been named for the garden and will feature within it. The purpose of both is to raise awareness of the fact that modern slavery happens in our towns and cities; right here, right now. Today slavery is hidden behind closed doors. The Modern Slavery Garden also celebrates the positive steps the government has taken to address this issue (via the recent Modern Slavery Act) and holds out a message of hope; together we can end modern slavery.
