In March 2012, the Zig Zag community garden began. It has grown to become a place of amazing beauty, where flowers have blossomed alongside friendships, pride and care, along with fruit, herbs and trees. Without the Zig Zags, the dream to take on the Beacon wouldn’t have seemed possible…
We (Martin and Carly) are dealing with harrowing personal circumstances right now. Our lives have totally changed. We are re-evaluating, looking inward for a while, who knows for how long. So to all those who have seen and helped the garden grow, all those who have shared dreams for the Beacon, and for our community, it’s time for this beautiful neighbourhood to come closer together. If you want things to continue to happen – the garden, the Beacon, then now is the time to stand up, step forward and get your hands dirty.
Right now, Rob is looking for volunteers to help decorate the space, and then propose how the Beacon could be used. It’s starting to shine. Anything is possible. If you have ideas and dreams, then go along to the Beacon this Saturday 25th, 11.30am-1pm, or get in touch via facebook and make them happen.
In the longer term, to keep the garden growing, and to continue the monthly afternoon gatherings, others need to help to take this forward, whilst we figure out how to heal ourselves.
This is a wonderfully supportive, creative community, at this time more than any, we are so grateful from for your warmth and support, for standing by us, being here for us, for lending us your love.
Thank you, C and M x
