Fun in the Garden at Orchard Park Senior LivingMay 10, 2016 | Orchard Park
Spring is in full bloom at our beautiful senior living community in Clovis, CA, and we're thrilled to be outside soaking up the sun and taking in the fresh air. We have many exciting springtime activities lined up at Orchard Park, including one of our residents' favorites: Gardening Creations and Gardening Club. Here is a more detailed look into our outdoor endeavors, including some behind-the-scenes photos of our fun!
One of the greatest things about active senior living communities like Orchard Park is that they offer a variety of engaging activities for residents to participate in. For example, after some of our residents decided that they wanted to connect more with nature and our beautifully landscaped grounds, the Resident Council decided to create the Gardening Club.
At our weekly Orchard Park Gardening Club meetings, we discuss the fruits and vegetables we want to introduce, tend to existing plants, and ensure that there aren't any weeds or bugs affecting the crops. Residents in our active senior living community love the time spent outside, and our garden is always full of delicious produce. We recently picked all of our homegrown radishes and are planning to plant cucumbers soon.
Gardening Creations is a spin-off club that is also popular with Gardening Club members. Our Creations program offers members the opportunity to decorate and design our garden area. For example, members are currently building birdhouses that will be placed around the grounds. The Science Class will then document which items were used to construct these birdhouses and which ones in particular the birds seem to gravitate toward.
Additionally, our Bird Watching Club is as popular as ever, and has a nice club cross-over with the Bird House Builders. Our Nature Studies group allows residents with a keen interest in plants and animals the opportunity to learn and explore the world right outside their doors.
Life at Orchard Park Senior Living is especially wonderful in the summertime, and we're excited for everything the season will bring.
