Saxon Hall gardens have 3 distinct parts – at the bottom is a CONTEMPLATE area where people can remember those they have lost or recall what the pandemic has meant to them.
In the middle is a profusion of colours which CELEBRATE the NHS & their staff (who have been using the centre since December 2020) for their dedication. We have a list & photos of 100 plants that individuals can use as a starter to enjoy the gardens.
Near these gardens is the community designed Memorial Statue surrounded by memory clay tiles. The Remember & Rebuild launch will be in the Spring, when the Saxon Hall Centre once again re-opens & we resume our weekly craft & chat workshops. At the top is the COME TOGETHER area with its raised beds (free for people to use) & the polytunnel, where we will hold weekly gardening sessions where young, old, families, carers & those they support, beginners & experienced gardeners can share their produce, skills & ideas for waste-less gardening. Kids Kitchen will have live & online cooking sessions to show how to cook easily & on a budget.
