Ireally enjoyed your article Growing
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.
