This year the Institute of Quarrying is celebrating its 100 years anniversary. A key part of the celebrations is the development and design of a quarry garden to be shown at the Royal Horticultural Show at Chatsworth House, in Derbyshire 7-10 June. It is the first time it has been held at this venue, many of you will know of RHS Chelsea Flower and RHS Chatsworth will be similar in format.
The idea behind the garden is to inform the general public about quarrying and allow members, of which many CEMEX colleagues are members, to celebrate the 100 years of this trade body. CEMEX is supplying materials, sponsorship and hopefully some volunteers to help at the show. The garden has been designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes, a well-known designer and a focal point of the garden will be an amazing wall sculpture by Ann-Margreth Bohl, consisting of 6 panels each 2.4m x 3m and, of course, made of rock.
More to come on the celebrations and this amazing garden in the coming weeks.
