One of Curry Senior Center’s most beloved programs is back after a winter hiatus and just in time for Spring!
Radical Acts of Gardening, a garden club, is a meeting space for seniors who love plants, and gardening. Older adults immerse themselves in all things that grow. Facilitated by self-proclaimed “Plant Guru,” certified health education specialist Humberto Pinon, the group is encouraged to experiment and try growing a variety of indoor plants. The gardening club helps seniors create as Humberto calls them ‘indoor jungles’. Theclub offers more than just showy foliage; it is an all-around great way to support the wellness of seniors. The session may look like any other garden club – watering, pruning, and repotting – but older adults are also practicing many of the key behaviors of wellness; social connectedness, exercise, and mindfulness.
