Northville Senior Services
Posted By: Pam Cameron (July 12, 2018)
The Northville Parks and Recreation Senior Services Department provides valuable services, programs and events for the seniors of Northville. Many of our seniors live alone and seek out services and programs in order to stay connected to their community. One way we provide this is by offering a senior volunteer run patio garden growing vegetables, herbs, flowers and friendships. Gardening creates a natural setting for socializing for both those who tend to the garden as well as those who enjoy its beauty. Planting, pruning and watering will give the seniors daily exercise that can improve their health, immune system, reduce stress and increase their overall outlook on life. The Community Financial “Summer of Sharing” funding will provide supplies and plants needed for the garden. It will also provide a gathering area for holding meetings and social events held around the garden.
