So, I’ve been a little quiet recently, but, I have some REALLY exciting news to share – I’ve got a new job and it couldn’t be more up my street! I’m the new marketing Manager for Scotland’s Garden Scheme (SGS), a charity that promotes health and well-being through opening gardens across Scotland to raise money for over 200 charities.
Having already visited a number of gardens open through the scheme in my area, I’m now looking forward to getting out and about and seeing many many more, from grand stately affairs to more modest city gardens and allotments. There should be plenty of walled gardens too – I do find them quite magical.
My first job is Gardens and Health Week, the 11th – 19th May – I’m looking for schools, hospices, care homes, welfare and community groups that might benefit from a visit to a garden. So, if you know a group that would like to take advantage of a free trip to one of our gardens, please do let me know.
