Thank you so much for your reply, really really useful and has already started me thinking. My current patients are very keen on art work and making something for display so working on a mosaic over the winter would be perfect - shells come to mind! The links are good as I am a total novice.

On behalf of Gardening Leave, I would like to thank Trellis for all the support and advice given to us since the project started in April 2007.  Gardening Leave couldn’t possibly have afforded to pay for the amount of HR, legal, financial and PR advice provided by Trellis.  The help and support given to ground breaking projects such as Gardening Leave has been invaluable.

I really enjoyed it, and the whole day was fabulously put together, prospering even through the terrible snowstorms!

Just to say 'thankyou' for the conference today - two of us came along and we found it very interesting and came away with a few new ideas for our project.

The conference is a great research opportunity for me (and a great lunch with interesting people)
Di B - Postgraduate Student in Therapeutic Horticulture at the University of Sterling

It was good to be at the conference. Lots of things to think about. So yeh made lots of contacts and thought it very valuable. Hope to try to come to other Trellis events.
Janet W - COPE Ltd

Only too happy to have been part of the Trellis event at Perth. Met a lot of nice people, and made valuable contacts.
Hugh F - Community Woodlands

I had a great day, I am always blown away with the amount of people who have a heart to 
help their community. I enjoy coming along to the events and I am looking forward to the grassy market event in april.
Lesley S - Larkhall Community Growers

We had a splendid day  at Cope last month, working with a class of primary7's who helped
us set up a new plot for growing cuttings and trees. Really I think it was the S.O.S. workshop that I went to at the conference, which gave me a bit of extra confidence, and made me think about getting the most out of a day with volunteers, and using publicity afterwards to raise your profile. It was almost as if the workshop was written for the day!
Anyway 20 teenagers painted fences, laid paths, barrowed chips, dug the plot, planted cuttings and trees, and really enjoyed themselves, I just thought to tell you about the day as I thought it was a tangible outcome of coming down to the conference.
Janet W - COPE Ltd

A Big Thank You to all at Trellis for your part in making it such a good day for us!
John A - Lothlorien Community (Rokpa Trust)

I had much to bring back on caring for our new orchard after the workshop on pests.  Lots of stimulation towards developing a therapeutic garden. I wish now I had put in a photograph for the competition. 
Merle F - Glenfinart Garden

I loved the conference - got a huge amount out of it and enjoyed meeting so many people.  Well done for the organisation.
