Food, fitness and fun have been the focus for the Port Stephens team.

Every Thursday Personal Trainer Glenn Tarrant from Anytime Fitness in Salamander Bay has been rotating the Port Stephens group between gym and outdoor exercise sessions.

On the upside the importance of fresh food has been on the agenda with a new vegetable garden providing plenty of opportunity to learn how to plant, maintain and harvest fresh produce.

Using the produce the group also learnt to cook meals and most recently showed-o their skills at the opening of the new Leisure, Learning and Work Centre at Lake Macquarie where they used produce from the garden to prepare salad wraps for guests.

A big thank you to Bunnings Warehouse at Taylor’s Beach for the generous donation of gardening supplies. Also thanks to Newcastle Senior School for assisting in the planting of vegetables during their recent visit.
