Caitlin loves helping to construct new features and plan improvements for the school grounds. She champions gardening’s importance in helping children with Autism and mental health conditions and has helped to re-create the school’s sensory garden.
"Caitlin is a highly knowledgeable young gardener with a strong environmental conscious. Her story is moving and inspirational."
"Caitlin is an inspirational young girl. Despite the pain of her injuries she throws herself into so many tasks and works hard to raise awareness of the importance of gardening for people with mental and physical health conditions, and all with such a calm and gentle manner."
