Lasagna Bucket Gardens Bring Senior Smiles

By Care at Home | July 29, 2021

Care at Home and Jan-YourGardenGURU team up to deliver starter gardens to seniors.

What do you get when you mix basil, tomato, and pepper plants with a side of marigolds for color in a bucket? You get a starter kit for making lasagna, otherwise known as a lasagna bucket garden! Care at Home and Jan-YourGardenGURU teamed up to deliver these unique gardens to seniors receiving home care throughout New London County. And what a day it was!

Jan Mallett and Kim Nagorniuk from Jan-YourGardenGURU traveled with Care at Home to deliver these self-contained gardens in Norwich, Niantic, and Mystic. “I love the idea that we are helping these folks to not only feed their tummies, but their spending time gardening will also be feeding their soul,” said Jan Mallett, Garden Business Coach for Jan-YourGardenGURU.

“It’s great to see smiles on the faces of seniors receiving home care in our community.” Said Suzanne Karp, Founder of Care at Home. “Even better, they get to enjoy the garden experience with their caregivers which can further develop the bond between them.”
