The Good Life Project is a therapeutic horticultural programme run by Pendle Leisure Trust and funded by the National Lottery. We are based at Hodge House Allotments in Nelson, Lancashire and we improve the health and wellbeing of individuals who may be isolated, inactive or have mild to moderate mental health issues.
This week we sowed some more sweet pea seeds. These were kindly donated to us from Thompson & Morgan UK. We can't wait for summer and the lovely scent they release. We have already been preparing the flower bed, digging in plenty of manure.
These will stay inside until they germinate as they are also loved by mice 🤣🐁🐭 Once they flower we can cut them and bring them inside and fill our homes with their fragrant scent. #thankyoutandm... See MoreSee Less

An exciting delivery arrived at The Good Life this week. It was a very kind donation of seeds from Sarahraven.com Their donation will help us to provide a wide range of horticultural therapy activities, growing fab flowers and some exciting new vegetables as part of our new 2020 Seeds to Success campaign. We have wasted no time and started sowing some Lathyrus odoratus 'Henry Thomas' aka, sweet peas. These will be planted out in early spring and we cannot wait to see their pretty red flowers, which will also have that fabulous sweet pea scent. 😀🌱🌺 #SeedsToSuccess#sarahraven#gyoforwellbeing...

The first seeds of 2020 have been sown. These are some half hardy annuals so they need to be sown nice and early as they can take a while to germinate. Thinking of summertime 🌺🌞 #seeds#summer2020#gyo... See MoreSee Less
