Gardening Season is Here! Help Seniors with their Yards

Cultivate

Image_202006230928

As seniors try to stay in their homes longer, yard work is often one of the first tasks that become very difficult for a senior to keep up with. This can cause fines from the city or HOA, bad feelings with neighbors who might not want to see their unsightly yards- neighbors a senior might have to rely on in an emergency, and a lessening of quality of life.
Maybe you've moved from a house with a yard to an apartment? Or maybe you just want to volunteer outside and get a bit of physical activity while helping out a neighbor?
Cultivate's Yardbusters program is designed to work with individual volunteers or families/households.
This volunteer opportunity is located in Boulder County.
