Silverado Residents Harvest Fresh Veggies from the Community Garden

Location : Naperville
  • Nexus Gardening Club
  • Senior Gardening Activities
  • Fresh produce

A part of our new Nexus program, —  a specially designed program to help residents in the early stages of dementia build and maintain cognitive ability — Silverado Naperville residents actively participate in engaging and stimulating activities. Families are often surprised to see their loved one learning a new language, teaching cooking classes to other residents or even participating in gardening clubs. 

Earlier this week during our Nexus Gardening Club, residents harvested bundles of fresh tomatoes and basil that were planted earlier this year in our community garden. Karen Quetsch, Silverado's new cook, came up with the great idea to use the fresh produce to cook up a snack. Our residents then worked with our Culinary Department to make a delectable snack that was then shared with the whole community! Bon Appétit!!
