LivingWell Care is a local community-based nonprofit organization that provides integrative wellness programs and services. Our mission is to empower people to take responsibility for their health and to be well mentally, physically, and spiritually. Our Spring goal was to create a Community Garden in two of our therapeutic environments, the LivingWell Farm in Hershey and the River Exchange Spiritual Retreat in York.
We provide a hands-on educational experience for those interested in learning about gardening, growing fresh food, and reaping what we sow. The flowers grown and harvested by local community members are taken to the Downtown Hershey Farmers Market and sold every Saturday. This provides support for our free community wellness programs and another opportunity for the community to become engaged in LivingWell activities.
With the generous support of our Friends – Warburton’s Greenhouses who planted and then nurtured our seedlings, Strites Orchard who weekly provides our locally-grown fruit and honey, and our Artists-in-Residence making beautiful pottery and arranging our flowers – we are able to present something new to enjoy every week!
Whether you’re two years old or ninety-two years old, from the city or the country, we’d love to have you experience our community garden!
