L’Arche Bognor Regis Community Gardening Project 2017
L’Arche Bognor Regis would like to thank Reside Housing Association for their kind and generous donation of Five Thousand Pounds towards the L’Arche Community Gardening Project.
L’Arche Bognor Regis is a faith based community where people with and without learning disabilities live and work together to achieve their full potential. L’Arche work to a person-centered approach which endeavors to always meet the needs of individuals to match their needs within the Community, work, in their spiritual and social life.
L’Arche Bognor Regis run three residential homes, a supported living house, an outreach service, woodwork group, a garden project and daily activities such as: Arts & Crafts, Dance & Drama and Music Sessions, Cooking, Gardening in and out of the community. The L’Arche Core Members gardening group carry out garden maintenance in the Bognor area, for the elderly and they also maintain a local church yard. The Core members enjoy keeping their own gardens well stocked with fruit and vegetables throughout the year, feeding the community through all the seasons.
Due to demolition of the Core Members’ Garden Work Shed and removal of their vegetable plots, the gardens now need landscaping to a create a level communal patio area allowing easy access for wheelchair users, elder Core Members, their families and friends.
But now due to the kind support and generous donation from Reside Housing Association, we can create a beautiful communal patio area allowing access for all the Community to share peaceful and fun times together with their family, friends and visitors. We would also like to create gardens of raised borders to grow herbs, vegetables and flowers for all toenjoy and carry out repairs to the Core Members’ green house. It is a very exciting time for L’Arche at Bognor Regis and we would all like to thank Reside Housing Association and Ellen Farmer for your kind support of our Gardening Appeal and we look forward to welcoming you all to the opening of the L’Arche Bognor Regis gardens in the summer 2018.
