GUEST BLOG: Natural high
Guest blog by SARAH FANTHORPE
Despite August's terrible weather, it was a beautiful sunny morning which heralded the start of another Cracking Good Food feast, this time at Syrian House in Sale. We all gathered in the sensory garden, where residents and staff of Natural Recovery have created a space overflowing with garden art and luscious vegetables.
We picked seasonal, homegrown courgettes, peas and garlic for our natural noodle dish, then created a simple sweet and sour sauce using pineapple juice and wine vinegar. Fresh ginger and chillies were used in abundance!
Natural Recovery is a community group that aims to use nature as a way of aiding in the recovery of people with mental health conditions. Syrian House is a care home for adults with enduring mental health problems and Natural Recovery welcomes anyone who would like to join the art/gardening party there.
