MOULTRIE, Ga. (June 10, 2016) – Legacy Village at Park Regency residents have kicked off the summer tending to their vertical, aeroponic tower gardens by Juice Plus+®.

Using three tower gardens that use only water and nutrients rather than dirt, residents are experimenting with growing up to 20 different herbs, plants, flowers, vegetables, or fruit. Legacy Village at Park Regency residents are currently producing tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, and cucumbers.

“Our residents can’t get over the fact that these gardens don’t need dirt. It’s a miracle to many of them that all it needs is water and nutrients,” Jennifer McLendon, Executive Director of Legacy Village at Park Regency, said.

“The residents tend to the tower garden multiple times a week. They enjoy having something to take care of as they anxiously await eating the fruits and vegetables!” said Lisa Childs, Legacy Village at Park Regency’s Life Enrichment Coordinator.

“Many people in this generation grew up tending their gardens every day. Having the tower garden gives them something to do and something to look forward to. It is very therapeutic and soothing for all of us,” McLendon said.

“We are thrilled to provide another life enrichment opportunity for our residents at Legacy Village at Park Regency. This unique aeroponic garden grows without soil, so the residents find it very intriguing, fun and enjoyable! They are looking forward for the next harvest, so they can eat the food it provides,” Bryan Cook, chief operating officer at Legacy Senior Living, Management Company of Grace Senior Living, said.
