I’ve been retired for almost a year and go to Q Gardens, a community garden in Rochdale, Manchester, on a weekly basis for the social aspect. It gives me purpose and an opportunity to meet people within my local community who I wouldn’t usually come across. The diverse range of people with a common purpose is what keeps me coming back. I love cooking and particularly enjoy using seasonal fresh produce – you can’t get fresher than picking ingredients straight from the garden yourself.
