GARDENUP – and Innovate

Garden Up is a brand new Lifestyle event for Sheffield, designed to kindle innovation and invite a sustainable approach to Modern Living through our Landscaping and Gardening in the Home and Office environments – our ‘LIVING-SCAPES’.

This innovative Show is now looking for Sponsors who will see the benefit of promoting their corporate vision with a project that espouses the values and ambitions of GardenUp.

In the years ahead we will build upon the success of our Pilot Show in 2014 to stimulate New Ideas in our ‘Living-Scapes’ and invite Designers, Businesses, Community Groups, Schools and Colleges to apply for Stands or Displays.

Overall the 2014 GardenUp was a success for the Exhibitors who attended and for the thousands of visitors to the Show. So we are looking to grow from that achievement. More Show Gardens and more Displays, Talks and Demonstrations, are key areas we will expand upon. See 2014 Show

SUCCESSFUL INNOVATIONS alter perceptions and enter the consciousness, so if visitors to GardenUp return home with new ideas from the show then we will have succeeded in one of our aims to make small incremental shifts in lifestyle that are for the greater good.

Demand for Action:

With five of the Global Imperatives in our survival being dependent on FOOD, ENERGY, WATER RESOURCES, SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT and SOCIAL COHESION, it behoves us to address these looming issues and come up with solutions.

It’s all about Modern Living: ‘LIVING -SCAPES’

There is a thread between our lives at home and in the garden, the commute to work, the workplace and out into the ‘leisure-scapes’ of urban and country life. And it’s because we MOVE in and out of these otherwise ‘static’ environments we have an impact on them and they too, have some impact upon us. 

It’s this interaction between us, and the spaces we move between, that lies at the heart of GardenUp. It’s not only objects and natural or built environments, it’s also about behaviours and adaptation too.

GardenUp is all about – How we construct the spaces around us, how we move through and around those spaces, and what objects and features, what behaviours and activities we place in those environments that are useful, have meaning, and connect with the rest of the world around us.
