Presenter Diarmuid Gavin has officially opened a charity's garden demonstrating the human and ecological benefits of green spaces.
The Prince's Natural House garden in Watford was opened by former Home Front presenter and Prince's Foundation ambassador Diarmuid on May 2.
The new green space situated at the charity's eco house features edible, medicinal and biodiverse sections, which demonstrate a balance between protecting and enhancing biodiversity and meeting human needs.
The charity, which highlights the importance of green urban spaces in homes and communities, will also use the garden to encourage the growth of wildlife such as bees and other pollinators.
Prince's Foundation chief executive Hank Dittmar said: "We have long promoted the idea that green spaces are vital to the health and well-being of communities.
"The garden at the Prince's Natural House has enabled us to showcase our ideas around ecological and human harmony and we are delighted that our ambassador Diarmuid Gavin was able to officially open our design to the public."
