Suzanne from Veg
Suzanne has been working here for 11 years, and she loves the whole site at Mires Beck, especially in the Summer when everything is in full bloom. She also loves the peace in the woods, and the butterflies in the meadows in and around the nursery. She says “it’s so not a garden centre, it’s unique”!
She describes Mires Beck as somewhere for people to learn to care, both for each other and the environment they work in. She loves seeing the people she works with learn and grow, and to be able to praise them for a job well done. Suzanne likes the shared sense of caring and having fun together.
Suzanne cares about the service users because she feels it’s important they have somewhere they feel valued and useful, which isn’t always the case in the wider world.
She challenges them to complete every task to the highest standard, be it filling compost, pricking out and potting on seedlings, or planting out into our raised beds.
Suzanne says that for her recently acquired polytunnel, her team would like:
Tools (trowels, spades, rakes, sweeping brush, shovel)
Metal cupboard to store tools and other equipment
A small metal filing cabinet for stationary, books, labels, and more
A free standing noticeboard
