The DEC represents top UK charities, and so far has raised over £50 million for the Nepalese people.
People from all around the world are showing their support for the Nepalese people by creating their own Mandala’s, which have deep spiritual meaning in the areas worst hit by the earthquake. Here are some of my favourites…

Here is a reaction from a Nepalese man to the project:
Why don’t you get involved? Get creative and show your support by creating a Mandala, posting it on social media with the Hashtag #Shaken explaining why you are doing it (and linking to the DEC). And don’t forget to tweet/share with me so I can post it!
People often ask me how they can get involved in the pothole gardener project. I love it when people send me their gardens from all corners of the globe, so please do keep sending them to me!
Now, for those of you that are not so green fingered, there’s another way to get involved.
You can now water my pothole gardens (virtually) by donating to WaterAid through my Just Giving page. By giving just a few quid / dollars, you’ll be encouraging me to get out and continue the project, all while raising money for a great cause.
I’ve had a number of emails asking about new gardens – don’t worry I’ve been getting my fingers dirty and I’ll post some pictures soon. I’ve also got a new little project launching on the Pothole Gardener shortly, so stay tuned…
One of my gardens found its way onto the cover of Australian Garden History Magazine…
You can check out the full magazine here. Thanks to the team for the lovely writeup.
Next weekend as part of Feast in West Norwood, I’ve teamed up with the talented folk at The Open Works project to spread the pothole gardening love down the high street with local organisations, and locals!
If you’re interested in coming along to create a garden, there’s more information here. If you’re not quite ready to get your fingers dirty, why not come along to Feast on Sunday and enjoy the atmosphere? (and spot some tiny gardens along the way!)
