Walled Garden Update

Its been a month since our social and therapeutic Thursday group have been to the walled garden at Newton St Loe. And for many much has changed.


The weather was kind, and the group was large, allowing us to all join in with the first task of covering more of the lower garden under landscape fabric.


Our trainees and volunteers then had a variety of garden task they could join: either sowing seeds, planting vegetables, preparing the ground, or making beds.


We planned to relax in the orchard and take in the blossom during our tea break. Ted decorated the orchard beautifully, it was a very special time, lovely cake and bunting/floral displays.


A return to the garden for a change of task for some and we surprised ourselves at how much we were able to achieve together.
