Want a really great communal garden? Read on!

Silver River Productions, a London-based TV company, is currently developing a new primetime gardening series with a working title ‘Garden Republic’ for one of the UK’s major broadcasters.

The series will follow a group of neighbouring homeowners who will each expand their individual gardens by banishing fences to allow for one large community garden, to be shared by all the neighbours. Hopefully residents will work together to create a space that none of them could ever dream of owning individually and, with the help of gardening experts, transform their small plots into a beautiful space the whole community can enjoy… a real life Garden of Eden!

The homeowners will be guided, helped and mentored by one of Britain’s biggest gardening names, working together to decide on what their perfect garden will include – from creating a stunning rose garden, to tending chickens, growing a fruit orchard , or constructing a giant children’s play area. The series will be a celebration of both gardening and good old British community spirit!

The company is looking for a group of neighbours (with individual back gardens) to take part in the series – if you and your neighbours are interested please contact Felicity Rankin on 020 7907 3470 or email: communalgarden@silverriver.tv
