Urban Barrel Gardening Coming to Wonderland Assisted Living

Urban Barrel Gardening Coming to Wonderland Assisted Living

A "mobile garden" is coming to Wonderland Assisted Living, 3780 Napier Avenue, Macon, Georgia on Friday, March 25, 2011 at 2pm. 

The Urban Barrel Gardening is an efficient way for the elderly to grow their own food.  It is especially good for the elderly because they will be able to harvest their crops while sitting or standing. 

Our residents will be able to grow fruits and vegetables and herbs in and around the exterior wall of the barrel, while participating in an awesome therapeutic activity.

It is vertical farming instead of the traditional farming in a row.  It reduces the necessary yard space to 1/10 of the land needed for traditional gardening and conserves water.

The garden will be donated by Retired Senator Bobby Rowan of Enigma, Georgia.

For more information, contact Patricia Duncan at wonderland3780@yahoo.com, 478-254-7171 or Mr. Bobby Rowan at 404-915-7611.
