We are so excited to announce that Lake Parke has added a greenhouse! This has been added with the purpose to step toward sustainability. There are many benefits to buying and growing local produce. It guarantees freshness, and quality of product. Along with the dietary benefits, gardening provides many social and mental benefits.
We added the garden to expand the list of activities we offer at Lake Parke. The garden is ran on a volunteer basis, and those who find it purposeful enjoy spending time in it. The goal for the garden is seen clearly in its slogan, "Cultivating Community. Harvesting Purpose." Our holistic aim at Lake Parke is to facilitate social interaction for all of our residents develop deep relationships that promote health and wellness.
Please watch the following video to see why researchers see gardening as highly valuable in the lives of the elderly.
