Lincoln Home Residents Enjoy Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
Over the summer residents from The Lincoln Home took part in a six week Therapeutic Horticultural program taught
by Irene Barber in the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses at Coastal Botanical Gardens. On this late summer day, residents harvested parsley, fennel, and kale to bring home and add to a delicious soup prepared by Chef Julie Adams. Observing textures, smelling and tasting were part of the program to help identify tasty herbs and edible plants. The residents then learned how and helped to plant radish seeds.
