Watch Our Garden Grow

Our garden is growing and flourishing! Sharna Nicholson and John DiCerbo (student volunteers from the Cornell Master Gardener program) take alternate weeks to come by and check on the garden they planted with our residents. While here they weed and make sure the plants are getting enough water. Recently Sharna came and share the flowers and beans with the group.

The donkeys were all dressed up with hooves painted purple to match their specially-made baseball hats. The ladies, along with the donkey handler, James, made the day so much fun!
