Life at No.27 has been announced as an official partner to GLEE 2019. Founder of Life at No.27 and National Growing for Wellbeing Week, Annabelle Padwick, will be an expert speaker at the show every day.
As a successful gardening and wellbeing-based therapist, freelance writer, blogger, speaker and radio personality, Annabelle uses her fresh approach to promote the magic of gardening and Grow Your Own. Annabelle will bring her many years of senior marketing experience and consultancy, to provide knowledge and insight to visitors at marketing-focussed seminars over the three days of the show.
On Tuesday 10th September, Annabelle will host a panel to discuss the value of a ‘community feel in garden centres’. On Wednesday 11th, she will discuss the relationship between people and plants, and the final talk on Thursday 12th, will see her provide simple and effective ways to make the most of social media.
Life at No.27 will also exhibit at the show at stand 19L62 where retailers can find out more about the opportunities available to them through the enterprise, and exhibitors can explore and discuss sponsorship opportunities.
Over the past 12 months Annabelle has been developing and building her UK wide vision for Life at No.27 – creating a bespoke allotment-based support network to help change lives across the country, accessible through self-referral, GP’s, psychiatrists and local councils. As well as, delivering wellbeing and national curriculum-based programmes in to schools to support those students of all ages struggling with social and emotional circumstances.
The first allotment site is due to open in Northampton in spring 2020 and additional sites across the UK will follow.
Annabelle is also an Ambassador for Thrive, the UK National Charity which changes lives through gardening.
