Gardening and Nature at Keystone Villa at Ephrata

Keystone Villa at Ephrata truly believes that removing obstacles and giving people the opportunity to do what they love is how a person experiences fulfillment and joy each day. This is how we choose to enrich the lives of our residents. Finding those interests and helping them achieve great things is to give them a life full of purpose and happiness. Our Gardening Club is a supreme example of this mission.

Our residents gather to plan, plant and care for their gardens utilizing gardening plots, planters and gardening boxes. This allows each and every person, regardless of limitations, the ability to have their hands in the soil and the opportunity to see their hard work come to fruition. Gardening has been proven to reduce stress and improve mental well-being. Take a short walk around our campus and you can immediately experience and enjoy their hard work.

Our gardening isn’t just limited to flowers. We grow herbs, teas, fruits and vegetables. Our residents love to sit on the rooftop deck and enjoy a glass of meadow tea made from their homegrown tea. They gather for “Gabbing in the Garden,” fellowship and the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

To quote Thomas Jefferson, “The greatest service which can be rendered to any country is to add a useful plant to its culture.” The Gardening Club of Keystone Villa at Ephrata certainly takes those words to heart. We would love for you to visit and have the opportunity to spend time in our courtyard or one of our gardens. Flowers always make the heart feel younger.
