Woodlands Care Centre

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!
