Sharing childhood memories of harvest time
Many of the older people who come to our day centres grew up in the countryside and have childhood memories of helping their parents at harvest time. In September 2018 clients, staff and volunteers joined in a Harvest celebration by sharing memories of childhood experiences. People talked about their memories of picking peas and how as children they had to separate the potatoes from their plants after they'd been dug up. Several people remembered scrumping apples and removing rhubarb sticks behind the farmer's back.
After our group discussion, which brought back so many vivid memories from a long time ago, we sang Harvest songs. Everyone enjoyed a slice of the Harvest wheatsheaf (kindly made by one of our volunteers) with jam, and the fruit, vegetables and remainder of the bread was shared out to be taken home.
