AOW Associates, Inc. and Kingsley Arms Inc. Help Judson Meadows Build a Garden
AOW Associates, Inc. recently donated enough lumber to build 5 raised beds for a new Judson Meadows garden. The garden beds will measure 4’x8’x3′ each and will be available for Judson Meadows residents’ use. Kingley Arms Inc, a construction company in Schaghticoke, NY, donated the use of their equipment to help build the garden beds.
Residents will have the opportunity to be responsible for caring for the garden throughout the summer months for many years to come. The health benefits of gardening are plenty. Such gardens have been shown to promote a sense of well-being and pride, improve quality of life, and increase nutritional awareness. Gardening is also a great form of sensory stimulation, a wonderful way to socialize with others, and excellent exercise.
Many of our residents have been active gardeners throughout their lives, and although they have moved into a community environment, they can continue to do the things they loved to do at home. Residents who have never gardened before will have the opportunity to participate and perhaps spark a new interest.
Many thanks to AOW Associates Inc. and Kingsley Arms Inc. for helping to make this possible!
