News from the Demonstration Garden
Holme Lacy Campus is now completely closed but we are still able to look after the Demonstration Garden and make sure it is as beautiful as always ready for when we can start up.
We are posting images on Facebook and Instagram to show how the garden is developing through summer. Our wonderful team of tutors and trustees are staying in touch with clients to keep them connected and involved with gardening activities. Videos of flowers and vegetables grown for clients are being sent to residential homes. Ursula, a resident tutor, runs horticultural sessions at Leadon Bank in Ledbury. Clients there have been enjoying the glorious sunshine outside in the garden amongst the flowers and some unusual wildlife!
Plans are underway to run the charity’s autumn show as a virtual event this year. Tutors will work with their clients to produce entries for the annual competition – something for everyone to look forward to later in the year.
We have started selling plants again at the Co-op in Holme Lacy as part of our fundraising activities.
