Our floral, vegetable &lawned sanctuary thanks to our volunteers

At Amazing Grace Spaces, we are forever thankful to our volunteers, who add so much value to the daily lives of our residents. In particular, our gardener, Lois, really is a Godsend who, despite homeschooling 2 young children, finds the time to bless Grace House with her green fingers. The children also love to come to ‘help,’ screaming with glee when they find caterpillars, worms and

Lois answered the call for a garden angel and she has done some amazing work! What was once a wilderness, is now a floral, vegetable and lawned sanctuary for our ladies, who relish the time to sit, reflect and heal in the natural oasis of the Grace House garden retreat.

The garden has also given the house a harvest of runner beans, cucumbers, nasturtium flowers for garnishing food and 2 beautiful pumpkins (to name a few), aside from the fresh flowers that adorn the dining room table, making meal times a pleasure.
Thank you, Lois for all you do! We are eternally grateful.

If you have any skills that you would like to impart to our ladies, please get in touch. We are always grateful for help with moving our ladies on to living independently. We would especially welcome skills based around employability, cooking on a budget, budgeting finance and nutrition, fitness & exercise; however, we welcome all offers of help, so please call or email and we can have a chat.
