Re­cov­ery [23 Jan­uary 2018]. What a mar­vel­lous idea and a won­der­ful way to bring peo­ple to­gether. Gar­den­ing is ther­a­peu­tic, and bring­ing chil­dren, parishioners and mem­bers of the hos­pi­tal to­gether in this life-af­firm­ing way can only be a pos­i­tive.

Break­ing down the bar­ri­ers of myth and prej­u­dice with hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion, to­geth­er­ness and cake is a great start.Now when I see the next bloom of daf­fodils, I will think of those peo­ple fight­ing ad­ver­sity and learn­ing to live with men­tal health. Be­ing out­side and be­ing with oth­ers, I’m sure, has

helped them on the start of their jour­ney to re­cov­ery.

Let’s hope there are more vil­lages that take on this

ini­tia­tive so it can ben­e­fit the whole com­mu­nity.
