Gardening made easy as 1,2,3
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.”
