BENEFITING: LYTTON GARDENS SENIOR COMMUNITIES

EVENT: NYC Half 2011

EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011

Nanette Stringer

THE STORY:

Last year I began a multi-faceted horticultural therapy and accessible gardening program at Lytton Gardens, a large nonprofit senior residential community in Palo Alto.   We have built accessible  raised beds, grown herbs, mints, and edible flowers, and created garden and flower projects for residents' rooms throughout the last year.   We are hoping to expand the program to include an indoor sensory garden for patients with memory loss, a fragrance garden outside for residents, staff, and families, and horticultural therapy projects for residents who love to garden.   The gardening brings community, conversation, beauty, a sense of purpose, and edible treats to the lovely people who live at Lytton Gardens,

Here is the link to the article about the young program:   http://www.lyttongardens.org/Pages/publications/documents/2010AnnulReportFinalforwebsite.pdf

Please help support this project by making a pledge for my run in the NYC Half-Marathon on March 20, 2011.   100% of your donation will go to the garden and horticultural therapy project at Lytton Gardens; the half marathon is just a fun way to gauge your participation!   For instance, $1.00 a mile, or $13.00, will fund supplies for a Friday morning gardening project; $5.00 a mile, or $65.00, will help toward the purchase of outdoor herbs or indoor plant displays; a little goes a long way when it comes to gardening!

Thank you in advance for your support!   Nanette
