Gar­den­ing made easy as 1,2,3

Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - NEWS -

THE RO­TARY Club of Farn­bor­ough has un­veiled a paint- by- num­bers mu­ral at a gar­den for vul­ner­a­ble and dis­abled peo­ple.

The Farn­bor­ough Ro­tary Ac­cess Gar­den, opened in April 2015, gives peo­ple who are usu­ally ex­cluded from gar­den­ing the chance to en­joy its many ben­e­fits.

The new mu­ral was un­veiled at Farn­bor­ough Ro­tary’s re­cent vo­ca­tional com­mit­tee meet­ing. The meet­ing was held at the gar­den so new mem­bers could see it first hand.

Farn­bor­ough Ro­tary mem­ber Sean Usher said: “This ac­cess gar­den has been de­vel­oped by the Ro­tary Club of Farn­bor­ough to pro­vide gar­den­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for spe­cial needs groups in a safe and man­aged en­vi­ron­ment.

“The gar­den is man­aged by the Bloom­ing Marvel­lous Sup­ported Adult Gar­den­ing Project un­der the um­brella of Rush­moor Vol­un­tary Ser­vices. The ad­di­tion of a paint- by- num­bers mu­ral on the in­side end wall of the work­shop area has been pro­duced by artist and fel­low Farn­bor­ough Ro­tar­ian John An­der­son to be painted by the more artis­tic mem­bers of the gar­den­ing groups.

“Our new mem­bers Katy Har­ris and Fiona Hodg­son are show­ing the way with their artis­tic flare.”
