Many children love gardens, nature and our environment so Gill’s program has decided to go out into the community, working alongside children as we create gardens for all to enjoy. We are excited about this new adventure and hope you can come on this thrilling journey of friendship, encouragement and love.
To make each garden have their own charm and personality, while keeping costs to a minimum we are looking for some items you may have at home and no longer need. Please see the list below and if you find a treasure you would like to pass on to us please feel welcome to contact us. Wish List
Our Wish List programme is a new innovative one aimed at supporting disadvantaged children and abused farm animals which needs many things to help it evolve. Below is a listing of current items, all in the hope that someone may have one or even two of them that they may have at home and no longer need. aaa hodinek
Our Wish List may be a little wild or even extreme but our needs are varied. With both children and farm animals in the programme you can imagine our diversity.
The Wish List is also continually changing, thanks to the generosity of people and families who support Gill’s program. We are forever grateful and know that without this help we wouldn’t be able to grow or provide programs for children and care for a number of needy animals.
