On Friday, February 4th seed planting began at St. Joseph’s Manor Greenhouse – a collaboration between the Community Garden of the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer and the Residents and Staff of the Manor. Among those who participated in the planting were community gardeners, the greenhouse volunteer and former Nurse, Sara, a Resident who is 100 years of age, and Sr. Ana. So what does one plant in early February? Onions, shallots, leeks, oregano, chives, sage, marjoram and Echinacea, of course! Residents reminisced about gardening in their younger years as they filled trays with soil and covered the seeds. A beautiful experience for all.
Tiny sprouts were already spotted before a week had passed! Isn’t the work of creation amazing . . .
