Digging for Dementia

Growing with people with dementia

Digging for Dementia needs YOU (again)!

Leave a comment

The next few weeks will hold some exciting developments for Digging for Dementia – the Ordsall Community Allotments are finished (and looking brilliant!), the construction of the big Digging for Dementia raised bed will shortly be underway, and we’re almost ready to launch at the new site. The garden is ready to go, and now we need participants to join in the fun!


I’m recruiting participants to join the new group, which is provisionally scheduled to launch on Saturday 31st May, 10.30am – 12pm. For details of how to get to the new site, see here. Ideally, I’d like a group of 8 – 10 people with dementia and their carers, and all are welcome, not just Ordsall residents. If you can get to the allotments, you’re welcome to join! 


The start date may change, depending on the construction of the raised beds, so if you would like to come along, please contact me on 07970 877 084 and let me know, so that I can keep you updated of any changes. Things are looking good for the scheduled launch date, and I really hope to see some of you there! If you know anyone who’d like to come along, please share this information with them, including the leaflet below. Thank you!
