Staff at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s eco therapy site ‘Common Ground’ are encouraging residents to plant the seed for change by growing their own edible growing spaces.
The Common Ground project aims to raise awareness of the environment and sustainable practices across the healthcare landscape.
Staff have been working with the community to grow fresh produce which is then prepared and served up in the Guild Lodge kitchen.
As part of NHS Sustainability Day the team is looking for people to participate by creating a low maintenance edible growing space at home.
The project works closely with mental health services, partnerships and members of the community to provide sustainable outcomes for service users and the wider environment.
To find out more about the project call 01772 773578 or email Elizabeth Harrison, Service Lead on Elizabeth.Harrison@lancashirecare.nhs.uk.
