Gardening with Disabilities Trust. Adapting Gardens, Changing Lives, Defying Disability.

The Gardening with Disabilities Trust (formerly Gardening for Disabled Trust) exists to help people continue to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of gardening, despite disability.  

We gave away a record amount of money this year, helping around 1250 people to enjoy gardening…something which some doctors are now prescribing on the NHS.

For more information  about how we support disabled people with grants, please look at our website

Stone Rocks!

Join us in the life of Stone Rocks – starting in Stone and following the journey of each rock.

Started in the USA as the Kindness Rocks Project, it has now spread worldwide. Hand painted stones are left in places for other people to find to let people know that there is someone there – to create connection within a community and lift the spirits. Stones can also be decorated in memory of someone, or with flowers, stars, moons, fairies, creatures or a quote – whatever your imagination comes up with. (Remember to keep it family friendly!) We’d like to start this in our community, so have set up the Facebook page, ‘Stone Rocks’.

Please don’t take stones from the beach, maybe you have some in your garden, or you can buy them from a garden centre. Draw or paint your design on one side, and put the Facebook address on the other – ‘FB Stone Rocks’. Seal the stone with varnish spray and then leave it hidden somewhere in the playing field or village for someone to find (please don’t leave any stones in the way of the mower, or on paths or private property).

Wait to see if someone finds your stone, or go out and hunt for others that have been hidden – these can be logged on the Facebook page, when you’ve found one you can leave it there for others to find, or re-hidden somewhere else further afield – lets see how far our stones can get!!

We had a fabulous time on Wednesday 5th June at the playing field, getting started painting and decorating stones to hide.
