​Jack’s Beans - helping to raise awareness of mental health in memory of our son Jack.

Posted on

Jack’s Beans are free to anyone to help raise awareness of mental health in memory of our son Jack . (Last few left.)

Having lost Jack in March last year we discovered his box of beans.
Just one single bean grew last from our son Jack’s final allotment harvest of over 300 beans. We gave this treasured bean all our love and care all summer, feeding it regularly and protecting it from slugs and pests.
From that solitary black bean we again collected and dried them and sowed the offspring recently into little pots .
We would love you to grow one and enjoy eating and sharing them with your family and friends.
If you would like to find out more about the story of this ancient and amazing bean and why it is called “Cherokee Trail of Tears” then please visit
Jack was a kind and gentle young man of just 23 and we wish that others will get the help they need . We are fundraising at the moment with a sponsored Thames Path Challenge walk in Autumn and hope that you may support the event for Mind.
The plant Nursery will close on the 8th of September and we are inviting our customers to join us or perhaps sponsor.
Our family are walking 50k and friends and well wishers 28 k.

Love and best wishes Andrew , Liz, Lucy and Simon . ❤️
