The public have voted and Pathways to Home, Peter McVerry Trust’s Show Garden at Bord Bia Bloom 2022, has secured the People’s Choice Award.
The Show Garden, which also won a Gold Medal, is designed to represent the journey from homelessness and sleeping rough to living in a safe and secure home. The garden was designed by Seán O’Malley and Oisin Griffin of Griffin Landscape Architecture and is delivered in partnership with The Housing Agency.
The People’s Choice Award is decided by a public vote and attendees were asked to vote for their favourite garden.
Pathways to Home prompts consideration of the pathways undertaken and challenges faced by people supported by the highly successful and innovative ‘Housing First’ model.
Housing First provides a person sleeping rough with their own secure accommodation as well as access to intensive and specialised support services.
