Growing Together Project
This meaningful inter-generational and dementia-inclusive community garden project includes: Students in the Community-engaged learning (CEL) program at Vassar College, volunteers from the Lifelong Learning Institute at Vassar College as well as community members and older adults living in senior living communities.
ALL are welcome here. We welcome volunteers who are living with dementia and those who aren’t…but care about sustainable gardening, our planet and bringing people together. You will be able to share your skills and interests to help with the many tasks needed to help GROW this community garden. Weekly meetings begin January 19th. We have so many exciting seeds being nourished and look forward to bringing people together with purpose and meaning in and with nature!
We have weekly meetings scheduled, opportunities to learn and connect together, Plan, grow and harvest a garden, guest speakers, a very special Earth Day celebration and an end of season harvest celebration!
