WILLIAMSPORT, PA – Ralph Waldo Emerson stated it best “Earth laughs in flowers.” To the dedicated gardeners who participate at Albright LIFE, they shared there’s nothing like digging dirt and planting and yes laughing!
Of course to plant flowers, you must have plantings or seedlings to do so. The Albright LIFE gardeners were blessed with a generous donation of flower racks from Helminiak’s Greenhouse, Williamsport. Albright LIFE medical director Dr. William Keenan picked up the generous donation of 5 flats of flowers from the family owned and operated greenhouse.
The participants were eager to get up to their elbows digging in dirt. The rehabilitation team, together with participants, developed their plan to installation, laying out a plan and devised which flowers the participants like where within the landscaping. Then the digging began.
The flowers were installed around the signage and walkways of the building and it’s entrance.
