In 2007 we received a grant from Gorham Savings Bank to start senior gardens at the Stonecrest AVESTA Housing site in Standish.
In 2008 we started the same project at Elwell Farms Senior AVESTA Housing in Buxton.
Some of the residents of the Housing Sites come to the farm in the spring to start their seedlings in our greenhouse. Then when they’re finished with their planting, they help us with ours! Thank you.
An added benefit to the gardens are monthly gatherings where we teach & discuss produce preparation, recipes, garden techniques, nutrition, as well as cooking and sampling!
