FOR YOU. 800-452-4462 | interactive stations where residents can choose their own ingredients and have dishes cooked to order, he says. Garden Spot Village takes fresh- ness to the extreme thanks in part to an on-site, 4,600-square-foot aero- ponic greenhouse. The community's chefs help to determine what grows in the greenhouse's 200 vertical towers, while staff and residents tend to the plants. At any given time, inventory might include fresh herbs, a variety of salad greens and strawberries. Miller says Garden Spot Village's dining facilities use 80 percent of what the greenhouse produces and donates any extra to a local foodbank. In the sum- mer, the community partners with local farmers throughout Lancaster County to source additional seasonal produce, such as corn, beans and asparagus. Watermark is also integrat- ing on-site food production into its properties. At the company's new Hacienda at the River in Tucson, a 2,500-square-foot "healing garden" was installed and designed in com- pliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. It ensures a true farm-to-table experience for the assisted living center's residents, who are encouraged to help plant and tend the garden. Depending on the season, it supplies Hacienda's culinary team with produce items ranging from citrus and stone fruits, apples and avocados to broccoli, cabbage, kale, greens, tomatoes and fresh herbs. And, importantly, it gives residents a sense of ownership, purpose and engagement by enabling safe, com- fortable gardening for those for whom gardening is a therapeutic pleasure.
