"Friends In The Garden"
"Friends In The Garden", is the name of our new friendship group. The plan is to make an allotment garden where we can grow fresh vegetables and cut flowers to be used by the group members and distributed to others who are in need of fresh food.
These are early days, but we are hoping that there will be a lot of interest from all age groups who would like to get out in the fresh air and make new friends.

Gardening For Good Health
It is suggested that gardens and gardening can play a role in promoting good health.
It can help to reduce depression, loneliness, anxiety and stress.
It benefits various conditions including heart disease, cancer and obesity.
It may help in alleviating symptoms of dementia.
It improves sense of personal achievement among young people with physical and learning disabilities.
We are ALWAYS looking for new ways that we can offer support those of us who are suffering from loneliness, isolation and depression.
I know how I personally benefited from planning and setting up Geoff's Meadow in the weeks and months that followed his death. I remember how I spent those cold wintry days making nesting boxes and placing them in the hedgerow trees.
So we are looking into ways that we might be able to set up an allotment garden at Court Farm for those who want to come and grow vegetables and flowers and to meet like minded friends.
