Living Innovations seeks gardeners for its Greenland parcels

 

GREENLAND — A local provider of services to the elderly and disabled is seeking volunteers to help form a community garden.

 

Living Innovations, a provider of both in-home and community-based services, is requesting local gardeners to tend its parcels of land at its corporate headquarters at 47 Tide Mill Road off Route 33.

 

“Living Innovations will provide the land, fencing, water and use of restrooms during our regular business hours,” said Neal Ouellett, president of Living Innovations. “One of the sections of the garden will be reserved for a group of active seniors who belong to Wentworth Connections, a membership organization and senior center on Parrott Avenue in Portsmouth. The other plots will be available to Greenland and other Seacoast residents on a first-come basis.”

 

Living Innovations also has guidebooks from successful projects in other communities that can be used for inspiration. The organization has 11 offices throughout New England and serves communities from Massachusetts to Maine. It provides support for seniors, people with long-term illnesses or developmental disabilities, and children with health and behavioral needs.

 

Those interested are asked to call Veronica Polak at 422-7308.
