Poem about the garden

The Growing Gardens Project
Is a place to come and play,
A place to come and sit or a
place to spend the day.

It’s a place to see the birds,
or a place to watch the frogs,
a place to think of words or a
place for three hedgehogs.

The Growing Gardens Project
is a place for the wildlife,
A place for them to roam and a
place for them to home.

So come and see us here,
Explore the gardens land,
But be sure to make it clear
If you want to lend a hand!

I Just wanted to share these wonderful nature plaques painted by Garden volunteer Virginia. They are soon to go up in the nature section of the garden for all to enjoy.

Virginia hard at work.

Thank you Virginia.
