Description:
This community garden is an organic permaculture demonstration garden for the tropics. We have been supervising a Work for the Dole program for 3 years. Though not set up as a therapeutic horticultural project it has been one by default. The participants have responded very favourably to working here and interacting with visitors, developing a sense of ownership and pride in their achievements. We look forward to expanding to specific groups.
