We visited Friary Gardens on a beautiful warm day at the end of September. From their web site: 'Friary Gardeners offers horticultural training and greater independence to people with disability through the raising of annual and perennial plants from seed, growing flowers and vegetables, the sale of plants and produce and the provision of gardening services to the local community, particularly those who are elderly and/or have a disability. All the revenue generated by the sale of plants and services is "ploughed" straight back into the work.'
They are also growing plants for Great Dixter now! It is a magical place with a wonderful atmosphere. I wish I had time to volunteer!
