Students in a Grade 12 workshop class at a school in Alberta, Canada, recently put together 17 raised gardening boxes to create food gardens for four senior homes. The boxes will help about 300 senior citizens grow their own vegetables and herbs while also providing a place for exercise and social gatherings. The project is funded by a $25,000 grant from the New Horizons for Seniors program. Carol Barber, program manager for housing services at CDSSAB, said the students' efforts will, among other things, help curb hunger and get the seniors outdoors during the summer.
