Activities Unlimited of the Cowichan Valley

In Crofton, on Vancouver Island, the owners of a retirement home have created a garden that has not only enriched the lives of its elderly residents, but has also created a sense of community within their neighborhood.

Through a grant from Vancouver Foundation the home was able to build a garden, allowing people to get outside, interact with each other and be a part of something.  Foxglove Community Garden will eventually include an orchard, a pond and a vineyard.

“The whole concept kind of warms your heart when you see children, middle aged people, mothers, parents, grandparents and challenged people come together” says Burt Nydahl, retirement home Co-Owner.
