Participants and residents from SIG’s Southampton Way (SWAY) service took part in the planting, nurturing, and watering of a plot of spinach in the service garden with the support of recovery worker Olalekan Oladipo.
The participants and residents played important roles looking after the plot.
They all took the initiative to retrieve the water hose from storage and ensured the vegetables were well looked after and adequately watered.
On Wednesday the 7th of September, the participants and residents agreed to harvest the spinach. They felt happy that they were able to grow their own food and were happy and excited about their joint efforts in nurturing the vegetables from seeds to maturity.
After the harvesting, the vegetables were taken to the service kitchen, washed thoroughly and prepared for consumption.
The harvested spinach was made into a lovely stew by the service chef, and everyone it along with their dinner.
