We have a little white rambling Peace rose, which we planted in the rose gardenÂ a few years agoÂ with a simple stoneÂ dedicated to MP Jo Cox. It remembers her unswerving belief in humanity and the strength of community. '˜Stronger together', she said.
This principle of togetherness lies beneath and beyond our community garden tooÂ at Canoe Lake. Beneath, because we have always believed, that people come through the garden gate with respect and a love for gardeningÂ and the community. Beyond, because sometimes that simple sign of community is lost, when we don't understand each other, or if we disagree.
As is true in life, our road from the prom to the community garden, is long and winding. Like wild flowers blowing in the wind, we bend, and we break, and we grow. southseagreen.uk
