“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard”
Winnie The Pooh
We all felt more than a little like Winnie The Pooh this week as we said good bye to Danijela, nutritionist, community garden founder and health and wellbeing lead. Danijela worked at Dingwall for almost 10 years, since starting as an assistant caregiver while completing her degree. She became an integral part of the care team, supporting cottages and tamariki with healthy but realistic eating plans and ideas as well as wellbeing initiatives. The tamariki all love the garden lessons Danijela holds weekly along with Garden Pete. Despite all the Covid restrictions, we farewelled her fittingly this week with many heartfelt and appropriate gifts. These included her garden gummies, spray painted and signed by the team. We’ve been so lucky to have you and we wish you all the very best in your new adventure Danijela. You are welcome back to visit the garden anytime!
