Welcome to Digging for Dementia!

Hi, and thank you for visiting the Digging for Dementia website! Your interest and support is very much appreciated.


Things are already going full steam ahead at Digging for Dementia HQ; since being established in February 2013, I’ve already had so much support from both the local and online community, and so many people are excited for the official launch of the project! I wanted Digging for Dementia to be a collaborative, community-driven project in every possible way, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Tomorrow, I’m going to be viewing a little plot of organic land, which was offered to the project by a very kind Landshare user, and I’m hopeful that it will be the perfect little plot for Digging for Dementia. I’ve also asked friends, family and supporters to donate unwanted gardening equipment and seeds, in part because I’m eager to minimise the environmental impact of the project by using second-hand equipment when possible, but mostly because I wanted to empower the community to contribute and become involved in the project. If you would like to donate equipment to the project, please feel free to contact me at diggingfordementia@hotmail.co.uk. I’ve been really moved by the generosity of everyone who’s responded so far, and Digging for Dementia is developing in exactly the community-centred direction I envisioned. I couldn’t be more excited about the future of the project, and I look forward to sharing all the developments with you!
