Creating Plant Reflectors at the Waterside Day Centre

Osborne Property Services spent the day at the Waterside Day Centre recently, teaching the day service users how to make a plant reflector.

The Waterside Centre provides support for local residents with additional needs and has been running for 29 years. The Centre delivers social, educational and training opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.

Using step by step guides, the service users created plant reflectors and sowed peas which will grow in the next few weeks.

The planters will be kept in the potting shed at the newly revamped allotment which we Osborne completed in February this year.

The session was really beneficial as it taught the day service users to think about where their food comes from and how plants can grow. This links into our commitment to improving and promoting good health in the local area by encouraging healthy lifestyles, including exercise and good nutrition.

The produce once grown will be used in the centre and will keep food costs down.

The centre said, “Thank you to Osborne for popping in and showing us how to make reflective seed planters. We are looking forward to planting out the beans soon!”

Well done to everyone who volunteered on the day.
