This Square Foot Garden is designed for the elderly.  The Mel’s mix that we make is so light that there is very little stress on the legs.  There is only 6 inches of soil medium necessary for the plants to grow because of the supply of compost in the mix.

The joy of growing things provides hope.  Purpose and hope promotes healthy living.

My intention is to promote enthusiasm.  Hopefully the elderly will inspire their grandchildren to respect the environment and grow something of their own.  We can all do this (even at 94 years old) – 1 Square Foot at a Time.
