Building raised beds

Chris and I had another fantastic session on the weekend. We built raised beds for his wellbeing garden and checked in on the sunflowers we sowed on my previous visit.

As well as continuing to improve his woodworking skills, Chris feels happy and confident. It encourages him to take ownership of a growing project from start to finish. What could be better than growing your own vegetables in a bed you made yourself? It’s a real mood booster.

Raised beds enable you to have a variety of soil types in your garden, as well as improve drainage and increase soil temperature. They are also great for people with mobility issues because you can raise the height of the beds so you won’t have to bend down as far. They look really nice too.

We’ll be building another raised bed in a future session and in the meantime we’ll be sowing more seeds and making a window box.
