Jan-YourGardenGURU helps Care at Home deliver starter gardens to elder home care recipients.
What do you call basil, tomato, and pepper plants in a five-gallon bucket with a side of Marigolds? A Lasagna Bucket Garden! For a second consecutive year, Care at Home teamed up with Jan-YourGardenGURU to deliver these perfect summertime starter gardens to elder home care recipients in Southeastern Connecticut.
“It was such a hit with our home care clients last year,” said Suzanne Karp, Founder of Care at Home. “The Lasagna Bucket Gardens that Jan Mallett makes are fun, summertime projects that give seniors in our community something to look forward to each day! Besides, who doesn’t like lasagna with homemade ingredients?”
Jan Mallett, from Jan-YourGardenGURU, traveled with Care at Home to deliver these self-contained gardens to seniors along the shoreline in East Lyme, Niantic, Waterford, and Mystic. “It’s a complete joy to watch the smiles appear when they smell the fresh basil,” said Jan Mallett, Garden Business Coach for Jan-YourGardenGURU. “Their eyes light up as if old memories resurface with each scent. It is a sight to see!”
