20190617_092527Wow, I’ve been busy……

With help, I’ve been getting Old School Garden in shape for our Open Garden event this Sunday 23rd June (1pm-5pm). The weather forecast is good and the garden is starting to perform its summer show, so if you’re free and can make it you’d be very welcome.

As well as the garden to see, there will be displays and sales by local artists, the Aylsham Roman Project and St. Peter’s Church; and Jelly Cottage Nursery will be selling some of their wonderful plants.

Oh, and I mustn’t forget the scrumptious afternoon teas and Pimms on offer, too as you relax (hopefully) in the summer sun!!

All proceeds are going to two important projects that I’m involved with:

  • Improvements at St. Peter’s church, Haveringland– including acess for the disabled, a kitchen servery and all access toilet.
  • The Healing Gardens Project– having created a more welcoming entrance and therapeutic space for patients on the admissions ward at Hellsdon Hospital, we now want to move on to another local mental health facility to involve patients, staff and other volunteers in showing how gardens and gardening can play an important part in the recovery journey and general well being.

To whet your appetite, here are some recent pics…
