'Friends In The Garden' Project
We have now started a community gardening group at Court House called 'Friends In The Garden' and a large plot of farmland has been set aside for an allotment garden. The idea is to get folk of all ages out into the fresh air gardening, keeping fit and making friends.
We also have groups of young people with learning differences coming to garden and do bird watching in Geoff's Meadow and the surrounding fields. This has been a great success and we can't wait for the lock down to come to an end so that we can continue this project. In the mean time the gardens have been planted up with many vegetables which are beginning to grow nicely.
If you are interested in joining this group, or helping us in any other way, please email: email@example.com

The 2019 Open Garden at Court House, Stoford, Yeovil, BA22 9UA was held on Saturday 1st June. It was a great success raising, £763.44 with a share going towards the work of St. Margaret's Hospice. Here's our chairman handing a cheque for £300 to Susan Bickle at St. Margaret's.
On Tuesday 4th June, David and Cynthia Martin kindly held another raffle at the Olive Bowl in Gillingham, Dorset.
This time they raised a magnificent £275 towards our work of fighting loneliness and isolation.
Thank you both!
Here's Cynthia with cheque in hand.
On Friday 19th and Saturday 20th of October, 2018, 10 young children, who had lost a mum or dad, came to Court Farm for their 2 day SAMSARA organised and run by St. Margaret's hospice. They played, they painted tote bags and face masks and made pizza. They had picnic lunches down in Geoff's meadow and made seed bombs that they then threw at targets spreading the seeds that will flower for years to come. We were unable to take photos of the children but I can assure you that they all left with big smiles on their faces.
