Hello! Are you a keen and experienced gardener? Would you like to join us in offering residents free gardening and rewilding advice when they ask for it? There will be lots of people who haven't any experience at gardening or growing their own food, and many will think it's difficult. So it would be great for keen gardeners to join me, and we share meeting up with residents between us to offer them our free time & advice.
- able-bodied residents will definitely need to do their own digging! We are only offering free growing & garden lay-out advice, helping them to learn what to plant, how, where and when.
- we may also be able to form small teams to help any of our elderly or disabled residents to bring a little plant happiness into their lives! As we know, gardening is a huge creator of much happiness in our lives!
UPDATE: Obviously we can't do much of this face-to-face now with the social-distancing situation, but we can still be highly active via our Facebook page by contributing to discussions, answering questions, helping to motivate others! I'd also be grateful if you could help me to advise those who are asking whether to prepare planting beds or inter-planting. They could be asked to upload images of their gardens, balconies, courtyards, and we can then offer advice on the discussion board of our FB page.
