GARDENING GROUP GET BUSY AT LOVE WALK

19 June 2017

The Gardening group at Love Walk have been very busy recently planting a variety of fruit and vegetables for them to enjoy at the home. This year the residents are growing potatoes, strawberries, coriander, tomatoes, and we are pleased to report they are all doing well!

“Gardening is a popular activity amongst the residents”, commented Helen Pheby, Home Manager. “Everybody enjoys being outdoors in the fresh air and sunlight among the plants and trees.”

Volunteer, Brenda Shurvinton, has been helping with seedlings for the home’s tomato project as well as giving some top tips for success with indoor and outdoor planting. “It is great to do gardening with residents and staff”, commented Brenda. “Everybody gets excited to see the seedlings growing!”

Everybody is now busy with watering the plants, especially on the hot days we have had recently. Watch this space to see our growing plants!
