John Sweetnam writes about what working outdoors in a garden setting will mean to him and other adults with Down syndrome in the Cork region when Field of Dreams is operational. John is a Board member of Down Syndrome Cork and has been a strong supporter of Field of Dreams from the first stages of it’s planning.
This project is for creating a garden for people with Down syndrome disabilities, some are deaf and some love to touch and smell plants and sow seeds. It is good for people like us to know what kinds of fruit, herbs, vegetables and flowers can be grown. It’s also good for us to be out in the fresh air getting healthy exercise and making new friends.
