suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for over 35 years, the main challenge
is getting up each day and not thinking about the problems faced
or what may lay ahead. Having spare land available I set myself
the challenge to help other people, I realised that by keeping
active both physically and mentally has helped me immensely and
has kept me positive and out of a wheelchair.
It has always been a personal goal to help provide services to
local people and practically those with learning, physical and
mental disabilities, also those of us who feel isolated and lonely,
having seen the positive results from a previous project first
- The Community Garden is set in one acre
of beautiful countryside. I decided to create this project not
only to keep myself occupied and not to dwell on my illness, but
also with the aim of helping others and give them the opportunity
to put into practice the activities that I have learnt over the
years and how it can help individuals improve their confidence,
health and wellbeing.
create a Community Garden
from recycled materials.
encourage people with learning, physical and mental disabilities
to take an active role in gardening.
use recycled material wherever possible.
welcome people who feel isolated in the community.
actively promote individuals confidence & wellbeing.
The second stage which is presently on-going is to recycle waste
products collected from the locality and use this to produce compost
for growing and feeding plants. All produce grown, plants, fruit
and vegetables etc.. will be donated to the community to provide
a much needed service to people on low imcomes.
