Following my visit to Middleton St Mary's CE Primary school yeaterday, my colleague Sarah Tarrant sent me this e-mail...

"Dear Chris,you do put great quotes on your web site so here is one from a New Zealand author Keri Hulme...

"They were nothing more than people, by themselves. Even paired, any pairing, they would have been nothing more that people by themselves. But all together, they become the heart and the muscles and mind of something perilous and new, something strange and growing and great. Together, all together, they are the instruments of change." (from The Bone People)

For me this sums up our community garden and all the people who have come together to make it happen.Take care, Sarah."

Sarah is right; this is a really important message for Middleton, for Leeds and for all of us. Together we can change the world and make it a better place for our children, our young people, our families and our communities.
