As an update to the Project Simon Holland has organised for Petersfield Community Hospital, he has arranged for an outside area to be developed into paved area with flower beds and features including raised planters for patients to plant up themselves, we have put aside some salad to get them started, but i'm sure they will have lots of ideas for this area.
Wyevales have offered some plants towards this so my planting is based around what plants are available to us, we have selected a few so far, hoping more to come so we can fill the area for them.
We will be there Thursday to help with Planting and Landscaping, and there are plenty of other companies giving their time towards this, It should be in the local papers next week and then you will see who has helped and what they have achieved,
Some images of work so far as this is only one day and it has been cleared of lawn and hedgerow and a sleeper wall put in with an archway and some beds already marked out.
We will keep you updated,
