Roo Friend helps people get satisfaction and fun through gardening.

Gardening gives great opportunities for activities that stimulate mental and physical development. That means you begin to feel better almost immediately! Plus the organic food you grow and eat improves your life!

Roo can help you design, build, and maintain your own garden in any space with sunlight. At your own level of comfort! Community Gardens, Balcony Gardens, backyards, green roofs, indoor green spaces...it's all possible. When you engage Roo Friend you get a practical appraisal of the way your gardening site and yourself can interact, through the lens of Permaculture. This means you will work with nature to maximise your yield, whether it be flowers, herbs or fruit and vegetables. Your garden will be designed with your physical ability in mind. It will be ergonomic. It will also contain only what you love, and discourage what you don't love.

If you love animals, then the garden will be animal friendly, and vice versa. If you love running water and fish, we can make that happen for you. If you want to grow herbs and make essential oils...no problem. Patience is the overriding virtue, and once the initial hard work has been done (by me), all you have to do is maintain and enjoy it! Roo Friend is a Diversional Music Therapist (DMT) and a Diversional Gardening Therapist (DGT). He is experienced, qualified and empathetic. The mental and physical health benefits of gardening are well known.
