The Joy of Gardening

Ella Rosetes from the West Neighborhood shared that since Kaiser Permanente’s Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 18, 2010, several residents have been tending their herb and vegetable garden. One resident who used to grow lettuce on her farm was particularly excited about the prospect of being able to grow lettuce at her home again. She is seen regularly in the garden, enjoying pulling weeds,watering and fertilizing often for hours at time.

Pictured below is a resident tending to the rows of lettuce in the West Neighborhood resident garden. Also shown are before and after photos of the West Neighborhood courtyard with the Kaiser physicians, staff and their families hard at work.
