Tayshan Hayden-Smith

After turning to guerrilla gardening as a therapeutic outlet following the Grenfell Tower fire, Tayshan Hayden-Smith founded Grow2Know, a non-profit organisation that works to inspire and empower young people through horticulture. Grow2Know is all about making gardening  more inclusive and green spaces accessible, and showcasing the positive mental health benefits of being around nature. Grow2Know also highlighted the lack of green spaces available to the most deprived residents in one of the most unequal boroughs in the UK by showing The Green Gap, a 4.2 sq m concrete cube with a crack filled with wildflowers and the smallest ever show garden, at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
