Senior Gardening Club

Generally, when adults move into a smaller living space, gardening is not available. When this was brought to our attention, Shawnee Senior Center partnered with community businesses and student groups to build a greenhouse the seniors could use almost anytime they wished! We grow herbs, veggies, watermelon (and use them in our Meals Program) and our flowers won a Blue Ribbon at the Pottawatomie County Fair! We have several raised beds, compost from our meals program and a rainwater catchment system – we are attempting to make our greenhouse sustainable project.
