What We Do

Dee Sewell has played a key role in developing a number of therapeutic and community horticultural programmes in Carlow town and county. Her depth of experience and practical knowledge underpinned by a community development approach and a firm belief in equality and inclusion has ensured that all the groups and individuals that she has worked with are welcomed with empathy, understanding and enthusiasm. Projects are designed to meet both individual and group needs. It is this bespoke approach that has contributed to the success of the programmes and projects that Dee has led, particularly in working with people with additional needs.
