Secret Garden at Anglesey Abbey
In July and August 09, Arts and Minds continue to build on their relationship with the children, parents and staff from the Croft Child and Family Assessment Unit with Loukas Morley, to create a secret garden in the Hoe Fen Wildlife Discovery Area of Anglesey Abbey. The project, which is funded by Children in Need, is again an ambitious one and everyone is working hard to clear a space in which to plant fruit trees and to make a path between the trees using yew and ash logs from Anglesey Abbey. The idea behind the “secret garden” links notions of nurturing ourselves and others and the inter-dependence between people (and trees) for survival . The wooden path will symbolise the steps that are needed to reach one another while being sustained on the way with delicious fruit from the trees that are planted there – apple, pear and walnut.
