About the Garden - Medium Show Garden

This garden focuses on the importance of early detection and the positive outcomes and higher survivorship rates when cancer is diagnosed early. The garden places the individual at the centre of a journey, empowering them to look at their role in early detection.
The design features a charred boardwalk which represents the cancer journey. It floats through dense planting, allowing us to move through the garden, stopping at water bowls to pause and reflect. The large trees provide shelter and stillness while also representing strength and support, symbolising the role the Marie Keating Foundation plays for those on a cancer journey.
The planting represents the beauty, hope, and positivity of the garden and remains in stark contrast to the charred timber. It shows that despite cancer rates growing, if cancer is caught early, more people are surviving with new treatments and supports available.
