Inch View Care Home

2016 Certificate Level 4 - Thriving

Residents of an Edinburgh Care Home have grown vegetables for the past four years – including lots of potatoes, rhubarb and sweet-peas.  The Soil Association and the home's Welfare fund all put in some money to build a polytunnel so that residents can enjoy growing more tender vegetables.  Getting involved gives older residents a real sense of achievement and self-esteem when they deliver fresh food they've grown to the kitchen so everyone can enjoy it. The sweet peas are enjoyed by staff at the home - traded for a kiss!
