Residents at Simonsfield design vegetable patch

Residents at Simonsfield Residential Care Home, Liverpool, helped to design a new vegetable patch.

Our activities co-ordinator, Dawn, was assisted by our residents to create a special place to grow crops in for our garden.

Karen, our manager, said: “We love fresh air, so our garden is one of our favourite places to go to relax. The residents loved designing a new space to cultivate some fruit and vegetables – we’ve decided to plant carrots, strawberries and potatoes.

“We’re all really exited to watch them grow over the coming months and eat them when they’re ready!”

Qualia has been encouraging all homes to run activities around the theme of gardening this month.
