The beauty of community gardening is that it offers lots of different things to do and ways that people can engage in the outdoors.
Each person can find something to do during the session. It may or may not be gardening – it’s what is meaningful for the person that’s important.
So a variety of activities should be on offer – not everyone will want to work in the garden.
Have some options for those who have very significant mobility issues or low energy. For example, the DIGnity artist brings along different sorts of art activities, and we drink cups of tea and prepare a meal.
Encourage everyone to do whatever they feel comfortable with, doing things ‘correctly’ is not important, having something meaningful to do is.
