2:00 PM- 3:00 PM
Since creating my social media platforms one year ago, I've managed to create a highly engaged online community and have been at the forefront of the balcony gardening niche in the UK, including TV appearances on the BBC and a Silver Gilt Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I have rapidly found my own voice and proudly fly the flag for small space gardeners in a niche market. My talk will dive into the connection between small-space gardening, mental health, and biodiversity. I will demonstrate how I have used social media and garden design to broadcast this message to a wider audience.

About the Speakers
Jason Williams is a multi-award-winning garden designer, and during the pandemic, he started gardening on his 18th-floor balcony & slowly found the therapeutic qualities of gardening. A year later, he decided to collate his lived-in knowledge and create his own brand, Cloud Gardener UK, to help others start their own well-being journey through small space gardens. The aim of Cloud Gardener UK is to inspire a new generation of urban gardeners and encourage more urban residents to maximize their unique growing spaces, like a patio, terrace, or balcony garden, in an accessible way. Through his work, he shows that urban small-space gardening not only has mental health benefits but also has a direct impact on urban wildlife and biodiversity.
