This week Caerphilly People First Volunteers have been hard at work on their garden plots, planting broad beans.

Broad beans are packed with a whole host of vitamins and minerals, and including them in your diet can be beneficial to your bones, brain function, and immune system. Broad beans take 16 to 20 weeks to reach maturity and can be planted from February onwards, for harvest throughout the summer.  We are looking forward to picking them and eating them when the time comes.

Caerphilly People First Volunteers are at TARAGGAN Educational Gardens & Nursery in Gilfach every Tuesday morning from 10.30am onwards, so feel free to pop along if you would like to get involved.
