Jane is a New Mills based fine art photographer. She has made this work in conjunction with New Mills Transition Group and Incredible Edible New Mills. The group are working at Watford House on the residents' garden which has been neglected for many years.The project involves young people, elderly residents and staff all working together, sharing skills and developing community connections.
These initial images are of the neglected gardens at the start of the project. She is continuing to make images as exciting changes and growth happen in the gardens.
Forget-Me -Nots (Myosotis) growing profusely in the gardens are a poignant reminder of the effects dementia has on the memories of those who live here
