Our gardener would often say that nature is the best therapist. Sunshine and rain, feeling the wind and digging the earth all nourishes the senses and reconnects us with our life forces. The beatify of the flowers are like a medicine for the heart and soul, bringing the gift of inner calm and tranquility.
The benefits of the garden are not limited to our services users, as it is open to the public from Monday to Friday 9.30am to 3.30pm.
We are pleased to welcome Hans-Gunther Kern to the Blackthorn Garden, who delivers a modular course for people who are interested in bio-dynamic gardening. The course is entitled “Introductory Bio-dynamic Gardening, Grow Your Own Health”
In 2017 we began fundraising for a new Healing Garden, kindly designed by our Landscape Architect, Marian Boswall which is now well-established.
