This week saw the welcome return to visiting our good friends at Angel Court residential care home. We’ve waited patiently but were so excited to catch up with everyone again. As you can see we haven’t wasted any time getting a new project up and running. The plan is to create a Jubilee sensory garden in the residents communal outdoor space. We will be working with the Equal Arts Council and Henpower to help make this happen. Lots of the plants will be grown by the children in our poly tunnel so everyone gets a chance to be involved. The aim will be to then replicate a slightly wilder version of the garden for our Forest School and make our site more accessible so the residents can come and visit more easily.
The first session was spent reconnecting with our friends and planning the planting. Much joy and laughter as residents and children chose their favourite plants and bounced ideas about. The children encouraged the residents to have some hens in their garden too. Of course we have lots of hen experts that would be happy to help them look after them. We will look to hatch some chicks to get them started.
What a beautiful afternoon in the sunshine spending time with people we have missed so much.
