Our NIVSO team member and Regional Coordinator for The Defence Gardens Scheme in Northern Ireland, Charlie Marno, takes us on a whistle-stop video tour of his garden!
Charlie gives us an insight into what gardening means to him, how it benefits his mental health, and encourages you to get involved!
To find out more about the 10 week programme The Defence Gardens Scheme is running in Northern Ireland, contact Charlie on: 07399201986.
Courses are free of charge, and funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust. Sessions run once a week, and are facilitated by an experienced gardener and professionally-qualified horticultural therapist. No previous knowledge of gardening is required, just an interest in working together to a shared and common purpose.
