The Highgrove Florilegium: Watercolours Depicting Plants Grown in The Garden at Highgrove
The Prince’s Foundation has officially established a public exhibition space at The Garrison Chapel at Chelsea Barracks to showcase the work of the charity, its students and graduates. The charity, whose president is HRH The Prince of Wales, uses the Grade II-listed building to publicly exhibit elements of the charity’s work, with a particular emphasis on traditional arts and heritage craft skills, in a gallery space. The Highgrove Florilegium: Watercolours Depicting Plants Grown in The Garden at Highgrove is the first of a series of public exhibitions scheduled to be housed at the venue.
The Prince’s Foundation provides holistic solutions to challenges facing the world today. It champions a sustainable approach to how we live our lives and build our communities, runs a diverse programme of education and training for all ages and backgrounds, and regenerates and cares for places where communities thrive and that visitors enjoy. The charity works nationally and internationally but at the heart of the organisation is the heritage-led regeneration of the Dumfries House estate and its wider community, where its principles and philosophies are explored and put into practice. Earlier this year, the charity announced plans to set up a new education and training base at Highgrove to extend access to the Foundation’s courses into the South West of England. In addition, the Foundation is also now responsible for the stewardship of Highgrove Gardens to ensure they continue to be appreciated by the visiting public.
