at the Fairbanks Pioneer Home
The Fairbanks Pioneer Home opened its doors and began serving the elders of Fairbanks in 1967. Since opening, the Fairbanks Pioneer Home has stood as a pillar of our community dedicated to providing quality care to the elders of Alaska. As an Eden certified home the Fairbanks Pioneer Home takes great care to incorporate meaningful interaction, plants and animals to foster and support an environment rich in growth. Incorporating tasks into the elder’s lives that provide a meaningful purpose is fundamental to the Eden philosophy. At the Fairbanks Pioneer Home elders take great pride and joy in the annual planting, gardening and harvest activities. For our elders gardening is paramount to the Eden philosophy and also to encouraging meaningful activities.
This community project will provide a 6.7ft x 3.3ft raised Garden Bed Kit made by Vegepod, a large stand, two 3ft LED lights, 16 cubic feet of soil and all the starter plants the residents will need to get started! And will create a space for the residents at The Fairbanks Pioneer Home to grow herbs, lettuces, and flowers during Fairbanks' long winter months! All products, soil, and plants will be purchased locally at Holm Town Nursery.
Total cost of project: $915.00
