Captain’s Blog Stardate 4th June 2016;
Activity; first phase launch of the Sensory Treasure Island Trail.
Location; Benjamin Perry Boathouse, Redcliffe Wharf, Bristol, England (or, as we like to call it, Betty’s Boathouse).
Our main project for 2016, with kind support from the Cabot Neighbourhood Partnership, is to create a sensory aspect to our Trail and to this end we’ve had our colleagues at PROPS growing special plants.
Some of the plants weren’t quite ready in time so the Trail was augmented, in double quick time, with more planting; petunia’s, pansies, lobelia’s, curry plants, cineraria’s … smell, touch, colour, all appertaining to characters and episodes from T.I. – huge thanks to Tracey from PROPS, Trustees Chris and Sal for planting them all so beautifully.
