Ten Marrow Barrows regulars attended a session in Birley Fields Orchard today, Friday 23rd September. Victoria is one of them. She’s been coming to Marrow Barrows sessions, a group for people with complex needs, for some time now and she loves doing something that she’s never done before, getting her hands mucky whilst having a relaxing chat.
Coming to this Hulme Garden Centre gardening project boosted her confidence and she found herself “able to speak to more people”. She regularly attends the session on Friday mornings and uses the knowledge and experience she has gained.
Today, Victoria and the group are busy harvesting lavender, rosemary and poppy seed heads to be used in classes for children who are being home educated and in parent and toddler groups. Through these community outreach sessions, Hulme Garden Centre promotes sustainability and wellbeing.
