Courtyard Strawberry Wall

Did you know the health benefits of strawberries include improved eye care, proper brain function, relief from high blood pressure, arthritis and various cardiovascular diseases?  Did you also know that fruits from your own garden are higher in nutrients than the ones that have travelled thousands of miles to get to your grocery store?  For these reasons the Carlton Baths team have started growing strawberries in the courtyard on their very own strawberry wall.

Once the strawberries are ready they will be available with the other free fruit we offer our members and guests to help promote healthy eating.  Any donations received from the fruit will be put towards YMCA Open Doors which is an initiative that provides access to YMCA programs and services to people in need.

Having children assist with gardening and growing fruit can increase the chance they will eat more of the fruits they have helped to grow. If you would like your child to help water our strawberries simply speak to our friendly staff at reception.
