Each year, the Kent Community Foundation team is given a limited amount of time to volunteer in the community as part of their commitment to identify the underlying organizations.
Wednesday, September 8, K.C.F. The group volunteered the day at the Abby Physical Community Garden in Kent.
The list of tasks to do includes planting spring bulbs, watering weeds, watering, pruning, and trying to remove a large, stubborn tree stump.
The Abby Physics Community Garden provides friendships, medical care, training, and skill building for all those with mental health problems, socially marginalized, and the wider community.
Josephine McCartney said, “We are very fortunate to have the glorious sunlight on Wednesday by watering, planting and tidying up the beautiful ‘secret’ garden.
“We have been supporting this charity for many years and during the outbreak we provided 14 1,400 to cover the additional labor costs, volunteer phone and member broadband costs needed to support their members in a new way, and the garden had to be closed.
“After a wonderful lunch of gardeners using the produce from the garden, we sat down in a quiet garden and held a group meeting and listened to the beautiful voices of a choir singing in the corner of a garden.
“It was a wonderful day, and we want to say thank you very much for the welcome.”
In addition to supporting volunteers visiting the park, the community park hosts a variety of activities, including Faverham Men’s D, Beekeeping, Poetry and Singing Groups, and is open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
