Learners from the Senior Life Orientation class enjoyed getting their hands dirty during a fun-filled OT group session. Plants and pots were kindly donated by Di & Jess from the Riverglades Estate in Jukskei Park. Learners planted spinach and tomatoes.
According to this article by the University of New Hampshire, learning how to grow your own food can improve your physical and mental health, as well as the health of the environment.
Well done to Occupational Therapist Nicole van den Berg and a big thank you to Di & Jess for the donation of pots, coco peat bricks, tomato seedlings, as well as spinach and cauliflower seedlings!
