Chelsea Medalist launches unique Feng Shui garden design course.


Chelsea Medalist Colin Elliott of the Garden Design Academy has joined forces with Elizabeth Wells FSSA to launch a unique hands-on Feng Shui garden design course. Designed to bring the benefits of this ancient art to the garden, the first six-day residential course at the Garden Design Academy in the Loire Valley, France, will take place from 13 September 2011.


The course is an accessible mix of study and relaxation, with trips to renowned as well as lesser known Loire Valley gardens included in the price. By the end of a pleasurable and informative week students will have designed their own garden - with a little help from the experts at the Academy. They will also have seen some of the sights of the region, eaten well and perhaps sampled a few glasses of the local wine!


Colin comments: ‘The new course combines European garden design techniques with the principles of Chinese Feng Shui. We will show attendees how to work with colours, shapes and other design elements in order to strengthen the energy in their own garden.’


Elizabeth continues: ‘The practice of Feng Shui ensures that our surroundings are arranged and organised in the best possible way in order to achieve success, health, wealth and happiness. As our homes and gardens are so interlinked it makes sense that as well as creating a beautiful space that delights our senses, good Feng Shui outside will help attract high quality energy inside.’


The course is priced at £950 and numbers are strictly limited to ensure attendees maximise the benefit from the hands-on support provided. No previous knowledge of horticulture or design is required, only an interest in gardening and a desire to give the garden (however large or small) a new lease of life and an independent energy.
