Success on a plate for Naden House

Green-fingered residents of Naden House in Huntington have been reaping the benefits of their own vegetable patch by holding their first ‘grow-your-own lunch’.

A group of residents have been busy cultivating a healthy crop of home grown vegetables in the grounds of the retirement living community. Their hard work has already produced a bumper crop of cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, which have been shared amongst the residents.

With more crops to harvest the gardeners decided to prepare and serve a home grown meal for their fellow residents. On 4th August, John Farr and Graham Butler turned chefs for the day, producing a roast dinner with healthy vegetables straight from the garden.

One resident commented on how naturally tasty the garden-to-table vegetables were, saying that it reminded her of ‘how food used to taste’.

With so much success on a plate and even more produce ready to pick, Naden House residents are looking forward to more tasty, home grown lunches in the days and weeks ahead.
