In 2021, Bible Society sponsored a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, based on Psalm 23, 'The Lord is my shepherd'. It won lots of awards. Now it's your turn. Using our handy resources, you can create a community garden on the theme of Psalm 23 which will become a haven for people and wildlife, and bring people together, enabling them to experience the psalm. All you need is enthusiasm, a bit of time and our free resources.
The garden brought Psalm 23 – 'The Lord is my shepherd' – to life.
Actor Sally Phillips opened the garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. See how people responded to the garden.
You’ve seen the garden, now buy the book
Loved the Psalm 23 Garden? Why not buy the book? Sarah Eberle has collaborated with Bible Society to produce a book that will help you learn more about the garden, and crucially, create your own Psalm 23-inspired community garden.
How you can get involved
After the pandemic, we can now come back together and create a community garden on the theme of Psalm 23. You’ll be creating a beautiful place for everyone (and wildlife) and have the chance to reflect on the psalm. You can do this anywhere. You don’t even need a garden, though it helps.
