The Joys of Container Gardening
Gardening not only nurtures the soul, it can be good for your health. It’s also a great way to create shared experiences and memories with others, especially young grandchildren. Sadly, older adults are often forced to give up this simple pleasure because of illness or conditions of aging, or when they live in an apartment or assisted living community. Container gardening is a wonderful way around these barriers because it requires a minimum of physical exertion and only limited space.
You don’t need a green thumb to create a container garden. Lift yourself out of the winter doldrums and learn how to care for your own container garden in an interactive workshop led by Honora
Precourt, community liaison of Home Instead Senior Care. On Valentine’s Day, Honora will offer gardening tips, demonstrate a fun, easy project and provide the materials necessary for you to plant your own garden on site. You might even win a door prize: a set of gardening tools and gloves will be presented to the winner of a free drawing.
In celebration of this special day, the first 14 people to register will pay only $14 for this project; after then, the cost will be $17 per person.
