Philip, Rugby

Philip, RugbyHe has MS and is now in a wheelchair fulltime. He used to be a landscape gardener, had an allotment and, on entering teaching, set up a garden at the school where he taught. He required access for his wheelchair and also some raised beds. He says, “The grant from Gardening for the Disabled Trust has allowed me to have built a large raised bed to grow herbs and vegetables. Before my MS diagnosis I used to be very active and loved gardening. However this grant has enabled me to plant and grow everything from parsnips to pumpkins, beetroot to beans and quite a few weeds! It is keeping me busy and has given me something to look forward to. I’m looking forward to next year and putting my new horticulture skills to more practise. Many thanks to all at Gardening for the Disabled for making this happen which really has and will change my life.”
