"Hospital and care home gardens could grow food"

"The grounds of care homes and hospitals could be used to grow fruit and vegetables to help reduce the amount of produce transported from miles away.

Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) has been looking for park residents to register their interest in growing produce in allotments.

It said Highland Council had looked at the potential of also using care homes and hospital gardens in the area."

More on the BBC site.

It's an interesting idea and good to know that the Highland Council are taking provision of allotments seriously. Meanwhile locally, have you got any spare land in Nairnshire that would be suitable for allotments? Contact Nairn Allotment Society if you have.
