Week 2 of our Jubilee based sessions with our friends at Angel Court. Todays focus was sowing some wild flowers and getting some of the edible plants in the ground. First job, using our senses, who can identify the herbs? and Which plants are soft fruit? Dom then showed us how to sow wildflower seeds. As the children worked so more residents came to join in. Despite the misty rain we got lots of work done.
Its incredible to think this is only week two, the friendship, warmth and laughter was so beautiful to see. Everyone is so excited about this project, the sensory garden will be enjoyed by so many. Planning and planting it together makes it so special, creating a real community garden.
