IGD Community and Project Wingman

So, Indoor Garden Design certainly weren't sitting on their laurels during lockdown! Like Biotecture one of their projects was to help the NHS and their local community.

They launched IGD Community back in March, the first initiative was to support Project Wingman which was set up by a group of airline crew across the UK with the aim of providing first class lounges in hospitals for frontline NHS staff to unwind and de-stress. You won’t be surprised to hear that IGD donated plants and landscaped the lounges. Every coffee table had a complimentary copy of Ian Drummond’s book ‘At Home With Plants‘ too.

They also held charity plant sales where profits went to Project Wingman, and other charities e.g. a virtual RHS Chelsea Flower Show plant sell off with profits going to the Chelsea Pensioners. There was also a virtual charity collection throughout March and April for Marie Curie, IGD’s charity of the year.

As part of the IGD Community project, Team IGD had a good sort out at headquarters and found a number of second hand ceramic planters, which were planted up with summer bedding plants and donated to communities within central London to brighten up urban areas during these tough times.
