The Market Street Cottages at Moravian Village of Bethlehem is a 55 plus community consisting of 105 independent living residences. To continue to provide our residents with quality activities to maintain and improve their health, Moravian Village plans to build a 3,000 square foot garden at The Market Street Cottages. The new Cottages’ Garden will contain over 150 plantings – perennials and shrubs, raised planter beds, cold frames for vegetables, herbs, compost bins, storage sheds, a bird blind and various bird feeders and houses, a pergola, patio areas with seating, and fencing. This project cannot start without your support. We hope that you will make a generous contribution, so that construction may begin.
The health and therapeutic benefits of gardening within a 55 plus community are many and include:
An enjoyable form of exercise that uses all motor skills which leads to better mobility and flexibility, reduction in pain, improvement in attention and reduction of falls
Encourages autonomy and sensory stimulation
Social interaction, sharing, feeling of wellbeing, community spirit, and sense of pride as you see the results of your labors
Connecting with nature can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and depression
Spending safe time in the sun, increases vitamin D absorption which helps bone density and osteoporosis
Improved health through better nutrition with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs
There is a peacefulness found in a garden. Your gardening efforts are doing more than beautifying The Market Street Cottages, they are actually making you happier and healthier.
