From Garden to Plate

Since March we have been working with all the service users in Field House to plant a variety of vegetables in the garden. Not only has this been a very healthy way of getting the service users to eat some organic and delicious vegetables but it’s been great to get everyone engaged and taking an active role in nurturing their own plants. The service users have been responsible for everything including watering, weeding and making sure there are no pests eating away at the vegetables! Already we are seeing great results with some very healthy looking cabbage greens, lettuce, tomatoes and a wide variety of herbs that have been used in many dishes that the service users have helped cooking. As this has proved to be so popular with the service users there are plans to get several more planters put into the garden and take full advantage of the great weather that we are having and getting everyone out and about doing something that they have all found to be educational and also very rewarding.
