The Morgan Stanley Healthy Cities Garden is a warm and welcoming community garden, designed by Chris Beardshaw for the community in Poplar, East London. The garden is planted with vibrantly coloured flowers and features that reflect the history of the local community. The Morgan Stanley Healthy Cities Garden was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society at the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
