Hi, I’m Helen, the YUMI Garden Facilitator. I’ve spent 5 growing seasons with YUMI and seen it change from a derelict allotment site into a beautiful productive garden filled with fruit, veg, herbs and flowers. I am at the garden 2 days a week from spring to autumn, and 1 day a week in winter. I love being at the YUMI Garden, where over the years I have met some wonderful people from all over the world. The great thing about the garden is that we share our time, knowledge, food and stories in such a lovely peaceful space. It is really special when we use the garden for other YUMI activities and all the YUMI folk come together.
