George Herman House
I have discovered in the last 6 months or so that there is an incredible community of like-minded blog-lovers in Toronto, who share amazing ideas and have loads of personality. One of these writers, Lindsay of Little House Blog, mentioned that she was going to volunteer with the George Herman House to spruce up a sad and forlorn garden for their residents, and wanted to know if anyone else would be interested in helping out. I looked up the George Herman House and found an amazing transitional house helping women with mental and emotional troubles learn to respect and care for themselves, and signed up to help in any way I could. When I think of the hours of enjoyment I get out of my garden, I can't help but imagine how a lovely and tranquil space would help these women out.
