A quick tour around Dirigo Pines and you’ll quickly see just how much we like to play in the dirt. Our cottage residents grow beautiful gardens that add real curb appeal, and our folks at the Inn are always more than willing to add some color and life to the garden beds come spring.
Did you know our Inn residents also have the opportunity to claim a raised bed just outside the breakfast room? That means those in our apartments can still have a chance to grow beautiful flowers and tasty veggies and play in the dirt all spring and summer.
The benefits of gardening are many – from stress relief to exercise to adding all those delicious fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. And when the veggies start growing at Dirigo there’s usually more than enough to go around – many days residents can find vegetables available at the front desk in exchange for a donation to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s – a favorite charity among Dirigo residents.
