Gardening is a wonderful physical and emotional activity for seniors.
It is an opportunity to reminisce about times gone by while reaping the benefits of sunshine, fresh air and gentle exercise.
This activity is suitable to small groups, say 3 or 4 residents.
If you don't have an elevated garden bed, you can make do with a couple of tables joined together and a plastic table cloth.
In my personal experience I find that plant cuttings are preferable than seeds, however you may try both.
We'd love to hear your feedback!
