    I am writing on spec. because I need some advice with respect to a family with a severely disabled adult son. He lives in a dependent-resident ‘cottage’ with a large backyard. For a LONG time (years) the family has been wanting some help developing the backyard. I have been able to give them gardening advice (I have DipHort and work as a gardener/writer, but due to my own commitments have not been able to assist them in a significant way. As of the end of last year (when I last had contact) they were hoping the yard could be used by students or willing helpers, on a voluntary basis, (quote from mother’s email: …I just think there is so much potential here for a mini community garden, or weed control trials …)
    My question is, would such a project be of interest to Community Gardens SA or do you know of any organisation or gardening body that might see potential in this. I love the work you do, and would love to be able to point the family in the direction of some positive help. Best wishes, Angela Brennan (ph: 0479034480)
