Charter House’s steps towards sustainability

Here at Charter House we have some exciting plans to increase our sustainability and lessen our impact on the environment.  And the beauty of it all is that it will have huge benefits for all our service users with special needs or disabilities.

As some of you may already know we are well underway with developing our sensory garden.  As well as the wonderful planting to stimulate the senses we will also be growing our own food.  Everyone at Charter House can be involved in all the stages of this from preparing the beds and planting the seeds to harvesting the fruit and vegetables.

We will soon have some new additions to introduce to the Charter House family.

The fencing is up for the chicken pen.  Just need a chicken coop and we’re ready to welcome our new residents.  All our friends at Charter House with special needs or disabilities are going to love watching our chickens and helping to care for them.  They already love our other residents, the stick insects and our tropical fish so I’m quite sure they will fall in love with them.

The other fantastic benefit of all these exciting developments is being able to use the fresh produce directly for our service users at meal times and also for our Saturday morning cafe.  So if you fancy an English breakfast with our very own fresh organic, free range eggs then come to our Staurday morning cafe.

If we are lucky enough to have any left over fruit, veg and eggs we will be opening a stall to sell to the public so keep an eye out for this next year.
