Alexander Place- Waterdown, ON

Residents, staff, families, and volunteers have been working very hard to create a beautiful "DementiAbility Garden" that is accessible to residents, and functional in producing delicious veggies. Early each Spring, staff members assist the residents in planting various vegetables as seeds which are then stored in the home's greenhouse to grow. This year, the Gardening Committee decided that they needed to create a space for these veggies to go where the residents would be able to assist in the process (weeding, watering, etc.). After many hours of digging, shovelling, wheelbarrowing, stapling, and planting, the new garden boxes were created!

Now that the vegetables are ready for harvest, Alexander Place's chef, Tony, has been thrilled to be able to use the home-grown produce in the kitchen in the resident's meals! It has truly been a "Farm to Table" experience!

A special thank you to The Dirt Depot and Terrain Landscaping for their generous donations of materials for the project.
