The AgingWell Senior Garden Program
By nurturing connections between the natural environment, meaningful activity, the bounty of work and personal relationships, gardens and gardening enhance the aging experience.1 AgingWell has forged these connections through our garden program, which has flourished since 2012. To date, we have repurposed spaces around the community for older adults to garden at 12 locations.
Each site has a fully functioning produce garden and a garden club that tends them. Our partnership with Resolution Gardens has enabled AgingWell to create a sustainable program that provides joy and nourishment.

I’ve so enjoyed seeing the AgingWell gardens grow. Helping the local participants plant their vegetables and watching them joyfully harvesting their own produce is a delight.Frances Pearce
For more than 5 years, the gardeners at the Onion Creek Senior Center in Buda have been harvesting healthy vegetables. We enjoy sharing the bounty with our clients at the Center. Thank you AgingWell!Pam Nelson
