I have for the last six weeks been working with a team of offenders on a project called Garden Buds, which takes a garden that the resident for some legitimate reason is unable to tend and loan it to someone who would like a garden – but does not have one.
We have so far done two gardens one in St Augustines and the other in Boythorpe.
I have shown before and after photos to many people, and they can’t believe that they are the same gardens!
I would like to thank the Probation Service and the offenders for their work, and look forward to working with them on other projects far in the future.
And by the way, we are still looking for gardeners for other gardens we have so if anyone is interested please contact me.
