Yes it is Bornagain - these boys are slowing and successfully escaping from the clutches of drugs via "land" therapy - they are taught to be self sufficient and appreciate the fruits of their labours ....great place - it's another Franciscan Monastery

Yes they are indeed very lucky, as some of them I've been told are in a such a an existential mess when they arrive ...

Hope they have as much success sorting out their personal lives as they have organising that garden. It's looking terrific.

That's what's so wonderful Gee - it works. I spoke to one of those of the boys as we were looking round the monastery and you could tell he had found peace with the world and within his heart ....

Monty Don tried something along those lines in a TV programme a year or two ago. I don't know if the idea carried on after the programme finished. It's great to know it works :)

I hope it did Gee, or else it would've made a sham of the whole programme if it didn't - - - -
