We created ‘raised beds’ built out of durable Cedar wood & filled these with good organic soil. We planted vegetables, which have flourished providing crops of kale, chard, lettuce, tomatoes & carrots for our senior residents here at PAL.
Working on tending the ‘veggies’ is rewarding not just for the fresh, healthy food, but is excellent exercise & gets people out in the fresh air & sunshine !
Our grant enabled us to fund this entire project & we are very grateful to the Vancouver Foundation!
