Suzanne

Suzanne Campbell

Manager

Suzanne enjoys connecting people with the therapeutic benefits of gardening and the many inter-related activities that go with it. To her it is like gardening itself, it develops gradually and continues to draw you in, exploring the many options to go forward in a personal journey of discovery.

For Suzanne, a garden and gardening is humbling, joyous, physically exerting, healing, safe, beautiful and very rewarding. Probably an accurate description of what happens at the APCG.

Richard Senior

Deputy Manager

Richard came to the garden many years ago needing support. He is now the Deputy Manager which shows positively the powerful impact a project like ours can have.

He finds the earth he walks on is not always a fine tilth, but any bumps and lumps get worked out!

Richard says it is an amazing pleasure to meet and be able to support the many people who walk through the APCG gate and he knows that the staff can make a big difference.

Tom has been at the Abbey Physic Community Garden for nearly three years, first as a volunteer and then as a member of staff.

Tom discovered the Garden when looking for work experience following a period of isolation and unemployment, and immediately found it to be a very welcoming, accepting and peaceful place.

He loves working with and getting to know all of the volunteers and staff at the Garden and gets a great deal of satisfaction from helping to run the many interesting activities that are taking place in the Ground Force Action Team's churchyard project.
