Famed for its rolling hills, dales and seemingly infinite shades and tones of green, Great Britain is home to a fantastic collection of botanical gardens that are an integral part of its cultural heritage.

It’s not surprising that Annie Lennox recently fought to keep a sprawling 131 year old Aberdeen garden away from the clutches of development — anything seeded with lush botanical life serves as the lungs of our urban zones, helping to counteract the detrimental effects of modern day pollution.

For the first time, Prince Charles — one of the most preeminent sustainability figures in the UK – plans to allow the public to enjoy the garden at his official London homestead in a 12 day festival called the “Garden Party To Make a Difference”.

Occurring this September, he intends to spread the word about his Start initiative which offers digestible, eco-friendly lifestyle tips while also shining the light on inspiring local projects that demonstrate how everyone can pursue sustainability on a regular basis.

In addition to appreciating the beauty of the gardens, attendees will also be able to enjoy various interactive exhibits and live entertainment by the likes of Jools Holland (who 80s music fans will remember from his days with the pop group Squeeze), vocalist Paloma Faith, the comedy stylings of Sanjeev Bhaskar and an appearance by fashion queen Vivienne Westwood.

Of the impending event, Bhaskar commented that the Prince’s initiative, “gives us more control over our own lives by giving us fresh (and sometimes forgotten) ways of making our resources go further. Good news for our environment and good news for our pockets.”

For those who are intrigued by Prince CharlesStart initiative, the video below offers additional information on what his organization is trying to address.
