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!
