A Community Garden

This year, our residents and clients have been very excited about creating a community garden.  Because we have been emphasizing good nutrition and looking closely at our budget as well, this is a perfect project.  It is also a wonderful occupational therapy project. 

At Our House we transformed the curbside property into a productive vegetable garden.  At Swan House, we added planter boxes to the front property.  There are early crops such as peas and radishes.  There are also later producing vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and other nutritious vegetables that can easily supplement our current food supply.

Although we do get a lot of donations of produce from local grocers and other providers, the vegetables that we grow ourselves have special meaning and we know what is put into the soil and how it is harvested.  Any excess harvest can be easily donated to Esther's Pantry (our food pantry).
