Marigold Alliance Garden

By Stephen Laws and Paul Conneally

Health and Efficiency

An open relationship between the functional edible and ornamental.

The garden explores ideas around pornography and society in a time when gentlemen’s clubs and lap dancing bars have become acceptable additions to the UK high street and danger stranger bywords for the legitimate dismantlement of community cross-generational interaction.

The garden was planted by Laws and Conneally with the help of small children.

Planting Plan:

Trailing beans, strawberries, fennel, purple sage, thyme, poppies, oregano, sunflowers, lavender and day lillies.

The Marigold Alliance Garden was made as part  Beneath The Pavement A Garden with artists Amy Franceschini + Myriel Milicevic Commissioned by Radar at Loughborough University

Update:

The marigold Alliance Garden was to have no marigolds and the runner beans were planned to trail and go where ever they would ie not controlled with canes. When I revisited the garden I found that the community looking after it have planted some marigolds and caned the beans. It’s all good.
