Summer Solstice is an organic agricultural garden, designed by del Buono Gazerwitz, linking a green wheat field lined by native trees and wetland ditching to a sheltered potager. Kitchen garden becomes garden kitchen with an architectural green-roofed building where what is grown is prepared for eating outside. The planting is native and naturalised, and seasonal for the solstice. The garden is intended to demonstrate that the demands of organic practice, conservation, sustainability and self-sufficiency can be strengths, not limitation, in modern design. Hidden features are utilities of eco-friendly living – compost, wormery and water storage.
