VSC Green Team
Do you enjoy nature? Do you love digging in the dirt and soaking up the sun?
The Senior Center is looking for members to start a Green Team to help expand the gardening options on our property.
In 2017 the Sugar River Gardeners wanted to expand their work in the community and offer free edible gardens in Verona parks. Today, anyone can walk by Harriet, Hometown Junction, or Central park and pick and enjoy fresh vegetables.
Last month Alasa Wiest, Program Manager for Verona Senior Center and Lucy Gammeter, secretary from the Sugar River Gardeners, collaborated and brought mobile raised beds to the Senior Center! Garth Larson, club Vice President, built the two mobile beds. Lucy and community helper Tom Hartberg finished the project by adding the soil and donated plants and seeds. Final product….fresh produce for ALL!!
Thank you to everyone involved! Please feel free to help yourself to the vegetables as they start to grow.
This is a Health and Wellness event that you will not want to miss! Participants can visit with a variety of vendors and find a wealth of resources and information on many interesting and important topics. Many of the vendors you enjoyed visiting in past years will be returning as well as some new ones!
Step 2 – Purchase your products.
Step 3 – VSC receives 0.5% donation of all eligible purchases!
Everyone loves a good story. And everyone has some type of story to tell. Some are funny while others give advice through actual experience. We want to hear your stories!
Jim Zelem, Board member, is gathering stories in hopes to publish a book. If you have a story to share, send it to Senior Center to the attention of Jim Zelem. Put on your thinking cap, grab a pen and paper and get started!
Armed with decades of experiences, you can leave a legacy that will last for generations. Many have successfully managed mental and emotional well-being, rediscovered or found purpose in their lives, and connected with others from the wisdom and experience of the storytelling.
Only you can bring your unique perspective and experience to this world, so share your story today!
Jim is also looking for ideas for a title for the book, so start brainstorming!
Effective immediately, (12/16/2019), Verona Senior Center will not automatically close if Verona Schools are closed due to weather. If the Verona Senior Center is closed it will be listed with local news channels under closings.
