The news in brief…

It’s busy, busy, busy at Digging for Dementia HQ! There have been lots of great events and updates in recent weeks, and I’m excited to share some of them with you:

 

* Last week, I was invited to give a presentation about Digging for Dementia to the Salford Integrated Community Care Group for Older People. The group was so supportive of Digging for Dementia, and I met lots of wonderful people who are keen to help me to develop the project even further, so watch this space!

 

* I’m thrilled to announce that Digging for Dementia will once again have a stall at the next Society for Abandoned Animals event! I had such a great time at the charity’s All-Trophy Dog Show last month, and I’m looking forward to representing Digging for Dementia at SAA’s Summer Fair on Sunday 18th August.

 

* Last Saturday, I attended Feeding Manchester 13, a gathering of people involved in sustainable food production in Manchester on both a commercial and community level. It was fantastic to meet so many fellow community growers, and to share experiences with others who share my interests, and I made many valuable contacts, with whom I hope to work in the future.

 

* Last, but certainly not least, I’m very pleased to announce that Digging for Dementia is now a member of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens! I’m so excited to be part of FCFCG’s network and to have the support of such a fantastic voice for community growers, and I look forward to making the most of the many services they offer to their members.

 

There’s another big week on the horizon for Digging for Dementia, and I may be reporting back soon with some HUGE news, so please send lots of happy thoughts and good luck wishes my way, and be sure to check back in a few days for more updates!
