Sowing Hope Garden Sets
The therapeutic effects of growing and gardening are well documented. In times of stress, the tactile process of planting and simple act of caring for a seedling can be calming and grounding. That is why during these unprecedented times Age UK Derby and Derbyshire have created Sowing Hope Gardening Packs, the first of which included a marigold. The packs have proved so popular that there will be increased numbers on offer for the next set, which should be available in about five or six weeks time.
The packs include a biodegradable pot, seeds and booklet with instructions on how to care for your plant. The next seeds on offer will be herbs. The people behind the project include Caroline Cook, who is employed by Age UK as a gardening tutor and runs Gardening with Caroline. If you would like to request one of the next Sowing Hope Gardening Kits and you're over 65 then please call Carole at the Town Council Office on 01246 418 573 to register your interest.
