About Seeds of Hope

Seeds of Hope is our brand new immersive exhibition based in the Walled Garden and Bothy, created in collaboration with Lord Whitney, a creative studio based in Leeds.

Explore life at Harewood in 1918 through the eyes of the gardeners who lived and worked in The Bothy and the Walled Garden, and  step back in time to a war time garden complete with heritage fruit, vegetables and flowers as well as heritage goats and chickens. The exhibition will commemorate the experiences of those who worked on the estate 100 years ago, exploring themes of self-sufficiency, resilience, healing and hope.
