Kim's Garden Transformation! (3 photos) ...

We recently gave a grant to service user Kim Stowe Who has AMN, and her son Danny who has ALD. Their garden had become too difficult to manage so Kim wanted it to be a safe, pleasant place for them both to enjoy and easy to maintain. She had already raised most of the money for their garden, and ALD Life gave her a grant towards the cost of the work. It’s looking lovely Kim!
