Vegetables Straight from the Garden
Back to Top
BeBe, Francis, and other residents at Brightview Woodburn love getting their hands dirty in the garden.
Each day, they water, weed, and tend to the plants, vegetables, and herbs. Tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers, zucchini, and strawberries are now bursting off the vine and ready to be picked.
“We’re making tasty appetizers for everyone to enjoy,” explains Jerry Alverez-Merieda, Vibrant Living Assistant. “Bruschetta, cucumber salad and eggplant parmesan – all with the produce straight from the garden. We also used the fresh mint for mojitos for Happy Hour.”
“Residents enjoy being outside and in the garden,” says Vibrant Living Director Jay Jordan.
“Everyone contributes. Best of all, we’ve watched the garden take off this year. It’s been terrific to be part of this.”
