We had a wonderful weather for our Gardening club at 37 Lawrence Way! We prepared pots and sowed herbs for everyone to take back home. Everything is growing so well in this garden and we could even harvest some rhubarb and herbs.
Our next gardening club will be on 7th October. Save the date, as there will be plenty of tomatoes to harvest!
At Woodlands Care Centre, in collaboration with Young at Heart, a community project aimed at building links to help bridge the divide between younger and older people, we created two new veg plots and built a raised herb bed. This was based on consultation with the staff and residents, through which we recognized the need to accommodate wheelchair users and those that had reduced mobility. The veg bed continues thanks to a Transition volunteer with family in residence at Woodlands, and in June 2013 a crop of broad beans were harvested and served up as part of a meal for all residents!
