Garden Angels is a project run by women for women but as we grow it will also be including the wider communities we serve. Garden Angels volunteer to clear and tidy women's gardens so they can have a open peaceful place to be outside. It is a proven fact that fresh air makes you feel happier and if we can encourage women to also try to do some gardening then that will make them feel even better.
Garden Angels first project was helping the residents staff and families to change a drab courtyard into a fab courtyard and we've certainly done that - Take a look for yourself at the amazing transformation. However we have been showing our progress via our face book page so please go to the link via 'Our Facebook' along the top of the page to see the work we have done to date.
This is proving to be an amazing project for local women to become part of and the results have been fantastic too. Out of 6 garden angels 2 have become good friends and another 2 have felt strong enough to come off their anti-depressants. The difference its made to all the Garden Angels has been incredible. And as soon as we find the funding to purchase the She Shed - that will be the Garden Angels base - we will be able to recruit more women. We don't ask why you want to volunteer with us, that doesn't matter to us, all we ask is you join in openly to help create beautiful places for other women to benefit from. You don't need to know anything about plants or have done gardening before, again that doesn't matter. You will soon discover by simply being around other women doing something good can really help your smile come back onto your face.
If you'd like to know more then simply drop us a line.
If you are a women who needs their garden straightened out again get in touch and hopefully the Garden Angels can fly in and help.
