Reaping what you sow comes to mind when thinking of the Canal Vue Care Home harvest.
During the spring residents and staff worked hard planting seeds in the hope they would develop into tasty edible vegetables for everyone to eat.
Thankfully the task of planting, which was an enjoyable activity in itself, did produce some very fine examples of carrots, spring onions, radish, and lettuce which everyone enjoyed harvesting and eating!
Naomi Allsop, activities Coordinator at Canal Vue Care Home says: “We have great raised bed facilities here at Canal Vue Care Home so I wanted to make the most of the opportunity and also pass that opportunity on to residents who were keen to get involved and do their bit of gardening. We have been overwhelmed by the success of what has grown. We have been dedicated to our plots though, our tender loving care has definitely paid off.”
