Hello everybody!

It’s been ages since we blogged and I’m feeling sufficiently sheepish about it to come in out of the sunshine to write one.

Today is a shorts day – we have beautiful sunshine and loads of fluffy little white clouds fluffing about the sky. Michael, Meggan, Jimmy and George are all busy in the garden painting fences, cutting grass, fixing the community walking group’s mobile planters and generally enjoying the sun. I am working my way through a list of indoor jobs and then I will be frolicking with the rest of them.

On Tuesday, we had a visit...

Today's Blog is all about thanks. You guys are all awesome. We are blown away by everyone's generosity and from the bottom of our heart - thank you.

To Alison and Alistair McGregor, we are enormously grateful for the donation of the potting shed - pictures to follow once we have reconstructed it!...

It does help when we put the door frames on the right way round! They say that laughter is the best medicine and we have had a really good laugh this week. 

We had a donati...

Hello everyone,

The sun is shining (temporarily), the bees are buzzing and Michael is waging war on the calendula. 3Para (3P) is stalking around soggily (I accidentally got him with the hose) looking for things to do and if we’re not careful, he’ll find a project and be finished before we know what it is! So I’ll make this quick.

This week has been amazing. On Monday, Annie and I went to Dobbies all prepared to blow our Dobbies donation of £600 on plants, but we must be a little rusty as we still have some money left over. We walked out with a large amount...

Hello,

Welcome to the Dundee Therapy Garden Blog! We are a brand new mental health charity, set up to work with military veterans and veterans of the uniformed services, but you can read all about us here. There’s been a lot going on for Annie, Alec, Michael and me recently as we work towards getting everything ready for our first veterans. Having come back from our Christmas holidays (semi) refreshed, we launched ourselves into recruiting volunteers and we can now announce that we have half a dozen willing and able bods to help us. These brilliant new ad...
