A zone dedicated to exploring the theme of health and wellbeing in the 21st century, including interactive features which invite you to explore the theme.
The centrepiece of the Live Well zone, designed by Jekka McVicar, is a specially commissioned permanent garden, bringing to life the role gardens continue to play in our health and sense of wellbeing. Jekka’s garden is a living working space for mind, body and senses.
The garden is both a tranquil seating space where visitors can spend time amongst the aromatic herb beds, and a place to learn and explore what living well meant in yesteryear and what it means today. Visitors are invited to join daily ‘herbal conversations’ with Jekka herself. The garden is in support of Pathways, a day service for adults with learning disabilities and difficulties.
