Upcoming Events

June 6-8 - VA Leading Age Conference, Roanoke, VA

VA Leading Age Conference, Roanoke, VA

Garden to Table: Creating exciting dining experiences through resident involvement.
We plan our lives around our meals. It may even seem that we finish one meal and start thinking about what we want to eat at the next meal.  Communities need to consider the opportunities to engage people in the dining experience.  This can be achieved through growing the food in gardens, demonstration cooking, choice of settings and other opportunities within the community.  The opportunities to grow and use plant foods in cooking meals can be offered in a range of senior settings, whether it is a retirement community, adult day program, school or other venues where meals are served.

Community Gardens at The Duke Farms, Hillsborough, NJ

There is no doubt that gardening is good for us in so many ways, such as exercise, fresh air, sunshine, and organic vegetables. Many times, though, we overlook how gardening improves our health and quality of life. This talk will focus on many of the ways that gardening is good for us and how we can continue to garden throughout our life. Various gardening adaptations, such as raised planters, increase the ability of older adults, people with special needs and other individuals who will benefit from taller planting beds to be able to garden.
