Saving cash and eating healthily

families from the Retford Road Estate in Boughton are helping to establish a new scheme aimed at promoting healthy eating and saving money.

From your Garden to your Plate is the result of a partnership between Newark and Sherwood Homes and Ollerton’s Feel Good Foods.

The scheme is designed to assist tenants and their families growing their own vegetables and then being able to cook the produce.

Stephen Feast, director of Newark and Sherwood Homes said: “We are hopeful this scheme will bring families, and in time communities, together in growing fruit and vegetables that they can eat at a fraction of the price it would cost to buy.”

Feel Good Foods is a community based project set up to promote the benefits of ‘growing your own’ and is run by Ollerton and District Economic Forum (ODEF).
