UC Master Gardeners' garden plan creates new social, activity center for Sonoma seniors

Senior Adult in garden
A senior housing facility in Sonoma County wanted to create a gardening program for resident seniors. The organizers contacted the county UCCE office and were put in touch with the local UC Master Gardener program. Three Master Gardener volunteers met with the residents to help plan out the new garden, select appropriate crops, gather seed donations, and build gardening skills. That garden is now the center of some of the most popular activities at the senior facility, and provides a significant amount of the facility’s food. Residents are already planning their garden for next year!
