RESIDENTS at a Kinross aged care facility are getting their hands dirty thanks to a donation from a Clarkson business.

Kinross Care Centre has launched a gardening program after receiving a raised garden bed and seedling kit from Bunnings in Clarkson.

Service manager Michelle Lindley said it would form part of the centre’s gardening program and become a vegetable patch.

“Our residents love being physically active and getting outdoors to tend to the garden is a great way to keep fit, as well as being good for the soul,” she said.

“We love supporting our residents to pursue their hobbies and the restorative benefits of gardening are well known so this is a win-win.”
