Gardening at Millman Street #activeHCA

Gardening at Millman Street #activeHCA

Our garden plays an important role at Millman Street, giving our members the space to be outside in nature and keep active.  

With thanks to a community grant from Bluebird Care Camden, it can continue to flourish with our recently launched organic gardening project ‘Windows to the Soil’. 

Through this project, we will provide a space where Camden residents who are over the age of 65 can learn about gardening, grow their own fruit and vegetables, harvest their crops and then enjoy them as part of a nutritious home-cooked meal.  

Gloria, a longstanding volunteer says, “our garden is so important to Millman Street. It is a beautiful green oasis of colour and peace. We have to thank Bluebird Care for their generosity and for helping it to continue to grow.”

Andrew Rogers the Older People’s Services Manager quotes “we are delighted to launch our gardening project.  Our members are already looking forward to enjoying the fruits of their labour at lunch with their friends at Millman Street.”
