Earthwise’s Garden Buddies cultivates lasting friendships

news image

Earthwise Garden Buddies is a gardening together program that reaches out to seniors who live at home and would like to continue gardening for health and enjoyment. Volunteers are paired up with seniors, and together they work on new or existing gardening projects at the senior’s home, bond over a common interest and enjoy each other’s company.

Earthwise is looking to connect with new Garden Buddy mentors who would like to help support the seniors in the community and make new friends along the way. Earthwise will train new mentors in the necessary skills through several free workshops. If you have a passion for gardening that you’d like to share with somebody, contact info@earthwisesociety.bc.ca.

Garden Buddies is funded by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
