Virtual Get Togethers in Mid Ulster

28 June 2021

A lovely virtual generation connection between Nightingale Care Home Residents and Howard Primary School in Dungannon. These sessions facilitated by LGNI took place as part our Food For Life Get Togethers project with the Soil Association.  When we couldn't Cook, Grow and Eat Together face to face we did it virtually!

The sessions involved:

  • 1st Session  getting to know you Show & Tell, bringing along most treasured object to show to others and talk about
  • 2nd session  making and eating fruit skewers plus conversation and questions
  • 3rd session  decorating plant pots and planting up wildflower seeds and plants, conversation and questions, individual and collective performances of singing and poetry &plans for future ..

The residents and pupils had also been decorating rocks with pictures and positive messages to exchange for the pebble gardens they each have!
