Old tree...new apples...

Old tree...new apples...

I am undertaking a photographic project at Growing Space – gardening therapy at Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden - a charitable project which is re-purposing an old, until-recently neglected kitchen garden that is part of Gilmerton House, in East Lothian - see https://www.gilmertonhousekitchengarden.org.

This garden is being redeveloped by volunteers, the core aim being to provide a safe space in which people suffering from mental health problems can rebuild and then maintain resilience in their mental health, confidence and self-esteem, and develop a range of skills through volunteering in gardening activities.

The project is led and inspired by garden designer, June Tainsh (http://www.greenweaver.co.uk)

My photographic project is more long-term photographic essay than documentary. In due course, I will exhibit prints from portfolios of the work. At present, this project has no time limit, so will grow over time.
