Senior Gardening Activities
GCG Farmers are dedicated to successfully growing produce at your eldercare facility and getting participants excited and involved in that growing process. We offer the elderly access to a wonderful hobby or recreational activity. Some of the produce that could be grown at your location includes:
- Collard Greens
- Cooking Herbs
- Mixed Greens
- Hot Peppers
- Green Onions
- and much more!
GCG are not just farmers. We are highly trained and passionate about educating and creating a hands-on environment at our gardens that can be used by your facility. GCG organic farms are a place where not only food is produced, but where education can lead to a greater understanding of where food comes from, how it is grown, and what healthy eating really means. We give people the skills needed to grow their own food at home or in their community.
GCG Gardens can always be expanded, and if you are happy with the yield of your garden, we can easily install more beds. The benefits of installing a GCG raised-bed includes our healthy, high quality soil, as well as a clean, organized garden aesthetic that can work with any building exterior. We can also stain the beds to match the building.
GCG offers weekly and bi-weekly maintenance options to care for the garden. GCG’s horticultural specialists will work one-on-one with your residents over the course of the year to ensure the success of the garden. GCG maintenance services will engage participants in the process of growing produce, empowering them to eat healthier, get outside, and reminisce about their past experiences.
