Containerized vegetable gardening for homebound patients.


The containerized vegetable gardening project for homebound patients is a joint project of the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service and Home Health Care Agency of North Alabama. Patients who could benefit by having a container vegetable garden are identified by home health nurses. Volunteers recruited by the Extension Service help set up the gardens and visit patients. Through this project patients receive fresh produce, as well as an increased sense of self-worth.
