The search for Plymouth’s first Planting Memories garden

Friends of the McNamara Centre are in the process of searching for a plot of land in the Plymouth area that can be transformed into a sensory garden and allotment dedicated to ‘Planting Memories’ for generations to come.

This is the dream of Norrms McNamara who believes that gardens are wonderfully therapeutic for all those who are suffering from neurodegenerative illnesses. Norrms hopes to establish a Planting Memories Garden in every town in the UK. These special gardens will be nurtured and cared for by the local community with involvement from care homes, day centres and hospitals.

If you know of a plot of land that might be suitable for a Planting Memories Garden in the Plymouth area please contact:
Zoe Fairbairn, Bernadette McLoughlin, Cheryl Mitchell, Aletheia Care Solutions Ltd.
The McNamara Centre, Unit 9, Lee Mill Bridge, Ivybridge, Devon PL21 9EF

A fundraising day for the Plymouth Planting Memories garden is also being held. Read more »
