Update from Thyme2Grow

Following a tense few weeks, the Gardening at Yarl’s Wood Crowd funding campaign

reached it’s all-or-nothing target amidst great excitement just before Easter. In total it raised start-up funding of £5,658 donated by 138 supporters. In particular Bedfordia Group Ltd, based in Milton Ernest, have generously sponsored one of the raised flower beds.

Thyme 2 Grow now hopes to start therapeutic gardening sessions in June. Already

plants are growing and more are on order so that a splash of colour can be introduced this summer together with some edible crops.

to everyone who contributed.

Best wishes, Emma
