Problem Statement

How might we create a space that nurtures mental wellbeing?

Customer / Problem

Our generation is statistically the most affected by mental illness in all of recorded history. Anxiety and depression are further worsened by a dark future created by the current climate crisis. 


The Heart Garden is a community gardening space and initiative. Combining a focus on mental wellbeing with community engagement and sustainability, it provides a haven within a tumultuous urban world. The Heart Garden is a host to  edible, native and bee-friendly flora varieties as well as holding weekly activities for local residents. Ultimately the Heart Garden is dedicated to cultivating mindfulness and peace in harmony with city living.
