We would like to warmly welcome our brand new Oswestry Head Gardener, Imogen Jackson, to Horatio’s Garden!
Imogen will be responsible for nurturing our fourth garden at the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries with the help of a brilliant group of local volunteers. As Imogen is a trained Horticultural Therapist she will also run the charity’s gentle garden therapy sessions, which offer weekly physical and mental support to patients and their families.
Her position has been generously funded by the Postcode Local Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. We are incredibly grateful to the Trust for all their support, which will make such a difference to the lives of people affected by spinal injury.
Prior to working with Horatio’s Garden Imogen was based as a Horticultural Therapist at Bethlem Royal Hospital in London, therefore she is familiar with the wonderful health benefits that both gardens and gardening have to offer. She is incredibly passionate about her work, and is particularly excited about having the opportunity to introduce new activities and ideas to Horatio’s Garden Oswestry.
Although she is currently based in the south, Imogen is looking forward to a change of scene despite the fact that her move might be a little different to most…
As Imogen currently lives on a narrowboat, she will be floating her way to her new home in order to take up her post with the charity!
We are so delighted by all the enthusiasm and commitment already shown by both Imogen and the bright new volunteer team for Horatio’s Garden, and we can’t wait to work with you all moving forward.
