SENIOR LIVING OUTREACH

Another program the Tulsa Master Gardeners has is our Senior Living Outreach. Every year two to four facilities are chosen. Contemplative gardens are planned. The facility pays for the plant materials. Master Gardeners provide the design and manpower to prepare the beds, plant the materials and oversee the ongoing maintenance for a year while the plants are getting established. During the colder months of the year, five craft activities are planned in which the Master Gardeners participate with the residents. There have been heart-warming reunions with friends of parents and parents of childhood friends. All of us hope if and when we find ourselves living in similar situations, there will be others like them who will bring the peace and renewal found in gardening to us. Last year over 1000 seniors were touched. Contact us to learn more
