Making A Difference
In Our Community
It was always the vision of Raptor Creek Farm to be a community based and supported project. AllCare Health and the Josephine County Food Bank started the senior garden at the Farm which features two-foot high raised beds to make gardening easier for elderly adults. The beds are filled with organic mix from Southern Oregon Compost and are set up with efficient drip irrigation. The purpose of this project is to provide low income and disabled seniors with a comfortable and friendly place to grow veggies, enjoy the outdoors, and build a community garden. The senior garden project provides them with a place to not only grow their own food, but obtain social interaction and exercise all leading to improved health outcomes.
The Josephine County Food Bank and Raptor Creek Farm are operated under Friends of Josephine County Food Bank Network:
