In an effort to support health and well-being, FRP cultivates vegetable, flower, and herb gardens with and for our senior residents. The aroma of flowers and vibrant colors cheer residents as they enter and exit their home. Peer-reviewed scientific research shows that proximity to gardens and plants supports healing and improves one’s mood. Growing vegetables on FRP’s properties brings fresh, local food into the hands of some of Philadelphia’s most marginalized individuals, and offers opportunity for exercise and collaboration among diverse members of our communities. Volunteers are needed to help maintain and harvest our gardens. We are also accepting donations of garden materials and supplies!
