The Fruits of our Labor, Gardening Angels Club for Assisted Living Houston Residents
"The fruits of our labor" - - - - Beautiful organic tomatoes are being harvested by Treemont residents. Gardening Angels Group meets each week to tend to the gardens, search for and eliminate pests, harvest ripening fruit/peppers. The herbs in the gardens are available all year long and enhance residents soups and salads. Our newest Gardening Angel, Felix Meyer, waters the gardens each evening after the HOT Houston sun begins to set. As a result, the gardens are flourishing and producing bumper crops. Residents continue to enjoy the high planters that Maintenance Don and his team built a year ago!
"Our residents and staff enjoy being outside and working in the garden. We plant herbs and tomato plants to enjoy all season. There is nothing like getting outside, getting your hands dirty, working in the soil and being in the sun. It is therapeutic," said Aimee Dubuisson, activities director, Treemont Retirement Community.
