Why is the ‘Healthy Community Gardening Programme’ at Blissberry Social Farm a good idea? – @blissberryfarm & @mccruddenj1

Blissberry Healthy Gardening Programme – tomorrow (Tuesday) – where people come together, make new friends and learn from each other, while developing a garden which subscribes to practical, sustainable and organic ‘like’ principles. (We are no longer certified but continue to practice organic standards).
