April 18: Dementia-Friendly Urban Farming

photo (1)The farm volunteering evolved from a series of gatherings that Elderwise, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the Southeast Seattle Senior Center hosted to involve the community in Southeast Seattle in creating dementia-friendly opportunities that are desired in the neighborhood.  It is exciting to support the creation of programs by people living with memory loss, and family members and other care partners, for people living with memory loss and the community around them. 

After a successful launch day last month, the urban farm volunteer opportunity continues on the 3rd Friday of the month beginning this week, Friday, April 18th at Rainier Beach Farm, 5513 S Cloverdale St, Seattle WA 98118.  The event is from 9:30 am-12:30 pm and includes lunch.
