Eldergrow, a Seattle-based company with ties to Kitsap County that offers senior living residents a therapeutic connection to nature via mobile gardens, is launching a new Farm-to-Fork initiative.
The activity kit gives folks everything they need to start a new garden — an outdoor activity that can be done easily while following proper social distancing protocols. The kits were launched on April 22, Earth Day.
Martha & Mary Health and Rehab Center in Poulsbo recently became the first senior living community in Kitsap to partner with Eldergrow and utilize their therapeutic garden.
The kits will include a garden tool supply kit and fresh, organic herb plants sent right to the front door. Customers can choose from either the Savory Herb Garden Kit or the Happy Hour Herb Garden Kit. Eldergrow also provides online garden tutorials and how-to videos.
“We at Eldergrow want to make sure that the therapeutic benefits of gardening reach as many of our elders — and friends — as possible, said Eldergrow founder Orla Concannon. “We crafted the Farm-to-Fork Garden Program with everyone in mind.”
