Northeast Care Center in North Royalton, created a community garden at their main campus. The construction of the garden began in early April, and they completed it on May 28. Some of the raised beds are specially made for people with physical needs. The garden helps teach new skills to their disabled individuals and enhances healthy eating while encouraging connectedness with the surrounding neighborhood communities.
Money is still needed to support Northeast Care Center’s wonderful community garden. Seeds of Wellness showed their support by purchasing an engraved brick. You can also purchase an engraved brick as an everlasting way to honor or memorialize someone or a pet in your life. The bricks are displayed around the flag pole on the main campus by the Alpha Complex. Bricks are available in 4×8 (3 lines of engraving) or 8×8 (6 lines of engraving) sizes.
To order your engraved brick or inquire about a garden plot, you can contact Erna Malave at 440-582-3300 ext. 474 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Garden donations are tax deductible. You can also see pictures of the garden and its construction on their Facebook page.
