Plus, our residents get excited when they can snap and prep beans and purple hull peas that local area farmers bring in when they have a surplus. Our dietary managers often incorporate this farm-fresh produce into meals.
Combined, these garden-based and nurturing activities help our residents experience a renewed sense of purpose and support a higher quality of life. The colors and aromas of garden produce bring back pleasant memories and create new ones.
“The friendships Encore has made with high school choirs, FFA organizations, Girl Scouts, area farmers, etc. have turned into one big family. With community involvement, we have an even more vibrant, lively home at Encore.”
