The Tithebarn residents get planting in new herb garden

30 April 2018

Residents at The Tithebarn in Liverpool were inspired by the recent warmer weather to create a fragrant herb garden in the Home's grounds.

Reusing an old steamer from the Home's kitchen, residents planted a variety of herbs such as basil, coriander, sage and chives, as well as strawberry plants.

Activities Coordinator Mary Piert said: "We could see how much our residents enjoyed getting mucky and taking advantage of the warmer temperatures outside. In these types of activities, residents use all five senses, which supports their health and wellbeing and many are reminded of tending to their own gardens they used to have.

"We are now looking forward to eating our home grown strawberries and our kitchen chef has already made use of the herbs for residents' meals."
