When we moved into our house 9 years ago I was fit and healthy and the garden was for me to turn into an allotment. I was a complete novice, but over 3 years did a fab job and loved it. My husband has Bipolar disorder & has no interest in the garden. 5 years ago I started to feel unwell and to keep things simple I am now completely disabled, I cannot work, I cannot do much at all. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. For 3 years I couldn't even sit in the garden because it made me so sad. My husband manages the hedges and the grass, but under duress. It would be fab to have the money to make the garden into something easier to manage and to put in some raised beds that I may be able to grow veg again.
Thanks for the opportunity.
