In what ways have you seen community ‘grow’ over the lockdown period?
Tell us how, in under 250 words, and/or send us a photograph that makes your point in picture form.
We will use your photos and stories to accompany a video that we are making of the final chorus of Leonard Bernstein’s operetta Candide ‘Make Our Garden Grow’. Based on Voltaire’s eighteenth-century philosophical short story of the same name, this is a song not just about gardening but about community building, about ‘give and take’ with each person contributing what they can to build a sense of place that sustains all who live there.
