I have such good news. I have been asked to be the Artist in Residence at Horatio’s Garden in Scotland. The garden is based at Scotland’s Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit in Glasgow.
The therapy garden has been created by volunteers and through a charity, for patients to grow vegetables and plants and a play area for patients’ children who, until now had nowhere to go to during long visits. Outside ward windows, patients can now see wildlife coming to visit for the first time too – we already have a robin.
There is also a wonderful courtyard garden (photos to come) that I will be working in that thankfully has sheltered areas (or pods as we call them) for patients and visitors. It is a wonderfully quiet a space and such a change from the bare concrete paving slabs that were there before.
I am thrilled and if you want to find out more about Horatio’s Garden please click here.
I will be starting demonstration this Wednesday and will no doubt have news and stories to post in the future.
