The sun came back, and decided to make up for last time!! Phew, hot hot hot! What a challenging year for growers and wildlife it has been.
We are delighted to announce that we now have our magnificent shed! It may look like just a shed to you, but to us on the plot it means we now have shelter from the elements - sun, rain and whatever else decides to descend! And, very importantly, we now have a socially distanced classroom area for our Diploma work. To say we are delighted really is an understatement!
Our thanks must go to The Finnis Scott Foundation for their generous grant of £1,400 that went towards the purchase of our shed and its construction. Finnis Scott support charitable horticulture, conservation and arts projects. Take a look at the fantastic work they do at: https://www.finnis-scott-foundation.org.uk/
We are so very grateful and proud of our new workspace. We felt it needed naming, and were initially tempted by Sheddy McShedFace…(!) We were also tempted to open it out for suggestions, but after looking into The Finnis Scott Foundation, we thought it was wholly appropriate to name our new building ‘Valerie’, after the wonderful lady whose generosity and purpose will have touched so many lives for the better.
Can’t wait to get Valerie looking as smart on the inside as she does on the outside, with tools and educational resources all neatly organised. Watch this space for interior photos…(We can't wait to show you!)
