The process leads to the formation of an innovative and co-produced garden space that promotes recycling and nature. The process is exploring the role of 'well-making' and 'making well' (Gant, Hackney & Hill 2017). Can co-creativity respond to the 'crisis in care' and support staff as well as clients to improve their well-being and environment through making?
