In preparing for the Milk and Honey Farm at the J (Boulder JCC), Becca Weaver and Rachael Brody recently approached Boulder JFS about how to involve older adults.
The idea of having residents of a retirement community paint signs for the vegetable garden sprouted! As a result, Ingrid Swords, Boulder JFS volunteer coordinator, invited residents of Golden West to an afternoon of creativity.
The older adults painted signs representing the foods of various Jewish holidays and a lively time was had by all. It was an afternoon of fun, learning, and community that the residents, Ingrid, and Rachael thoroughly enjoyed. Ingrid said, “It was so much fun, I could hardly believe I was working!”
Later in the summer, stop by the Milk and Honey Farm at the J and enjoy the beautiful signs made by these creative older adults.
