This week at Angel Court the children took the photos, they did a fantastic job and it gave Miss Rowe and her little helper the opportunity to dig out some roots and move some earth. Only a few weeks left to get the garden ready and you can see how committed the children and residents are to the task. We planted more flowering plants today, lined the pond with sand and protected it with a tarp, cleared a whole heap of compost, phew what a good job.
At the end of the session John said how much it means to him, “It gives me a purpose, a focus for my day. The children bring me out of myself, thank you all.” That really sums up how we all feel. Sharing the experience, giving our time and energy, creating a working space that is also beautiful, forging relationships, we all felt very blessed.
