Spring has sprung at Headway Nottingham!  Thanks to a generous donation from One-Stop Carriers for Causes, Headway Nottingham has embarked upon an ambitious Access to Horticulture Project, to provide practical rehabilitative benefits for our members whilst improving the look and feel of our wonderful centre.

The willow pod take shape The first component of our Horticulture Project is the construction of our new willow pod!  After much hard work on strength, dexterity, task planning and co-ordination, the willow pod will provide a beautiful and tranquil space for those experiencing 'sensory overload' and requiring a quiet and calm space to recuperate. 
The invaluable support of local Landscape Architect, Julie Hardcastle from 9 Design, has made the vision for our Access to Horticulture Project possible.  Julie commits her time on a voluntary basis to help us make the most of our resources, whilst giving step-by-step instructions to support our members to create beautiful pieces for our outdoor space and support our local ecology.

Over Spring and Summer our work will develop to include beehive composter Art projects, cultivating a wildflower area to encourage bees and birds, construction of bug hotels and homemade bird feeders.  

Huge thanks to the wonderful folk at One-Stop Carriers for Causes and Groundwork for supporting our delivery of physical, cognitive and behavioural rehabilitation through this wonderful project!
