Gardening for health and happiness

Peel Living is more than just a place to live.

Community gardener and Peel Living resident Elvira takes pride in the gardens she tends outside her building.

Gardens and green spaces can improve seniors’ health. This couldn’t be truer for Elvira and the other residents who regularly visit and enjoy the Peel Living garden.

Elvira says the people who come to admire the garden tell her they love the way it looks.

“As long as I am able to, and as long as I live here, I will garden.”
