Growing Better Lives

May 12th: Compassion based Greencare

A day spent in the sun, starting with pricking out sweetcorn, marigolds and some ‘mystery’ sunflowers. Exciting- we don’t know what we are going to get with these 🙂 After a healthy lunch (well, apart from the chocolate fingers which were demolished by Hils and Vanessa) we attached the weeds and nettles root systems (Mary and Lynda conquered a bit one- see photo!) and added more compost to our no dig bed. Planted out our courgettes, parsnips and radishes to grow in the sun! File 12-05-2016, 15 41 09

A day of compassion as well: spirits were very much lifted as we became compassionate: looking after ourselves, others and the environment. And a day of smells and associations’: bubble and squeak, smoked mackerel and the whift of nostalgia, amidst a lot of laughter! Missed absent friends as always 🙂
