Horatio's Garden, the first hospital garden built specially to suit the needs of spinal injury patients in the UK, which also just happens to be here in Wiltshire :)
You may remember I followed the amazing story of the building of this garden last year (you can read about it here and here) and I was delighted Wiltshire magazine commissioned a feature about it too.
Although the garden is now open and the patients are enjoying a taste of the outdoor world, the hard work and fundraising continues. Last year, one of my favourite gardens, the Organic Garden at Holt Farm hosted a series of talks from the great and the good in support of Horatio's Garden. I'm pleased to see they and Yeo Valley next door are doing so again this year.

If you're wondering if my interest in WaterAid has waned*, don't worry. Sing for Water West is happening again in early July, so I'll be adding my voice to that cause as well.
