This week at Angel Court the children took the photos. As you can see as the planting becomes more established, the garden is becoming a bright and beautiful place. Colour and texture all around. Todays session saw the children making some seed balls that will be sown both at Angel Court and at school. Then watering the plants, adding to our herb garden and a little willow weaving took place, all under the guidance of our friends the residents. Each week more people come to see what we are doing and enjoy the space we are creating. After all their hard work it was a lovely surprise that Julie, from the cafe, had made some delicious cupcakes and biscuits for everyone to enjoy. What a treat! Julie has also bought a large barbecue for the garden that they plan to use on Saturdays whilst the weather holds. Its so rewarding to see that our efforts are helping the residents to reconnect with nature. It’s such a special place and for those with limited mobility, the garden offers a little oasis of calm that can be enjoyed without even leaving home.
