June was a wonderful month, celebrating our therapeutic horticulture work with young people across YMCA Exeter. BBC Radio Devon recorded two short pieces.

  1. Explore the YMCA Exeter garden with Sam Thomas and journalist, Jo Loosemore. Listen to clip
  2. Find out the difference gardening has made to ex-resident and now staff member, Max; and volunteers, Alicja and Hannah. Listen to clip

 And it was fabulous to host Gardeners’ Question Time on Tuesday 18th June. If you were one of the 250 people who joined us for the evening, we hope you had a fantastic time.

Episode 1 can be found on the BBC website. The second episode will be aired on 26th July (with a repeat on 28th July) on Radio 4.
