Special Project Opportunities
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Greenhouse Campaign. We have achieved our goal and have purchased our new and improved greenhouse. Stay tuned for building updates and to tour the new greenhouse in the spring!
At Wesley Towers, we believe the benefits of gardening are considerable. Evidence from studies around the world suggest these benefits arise in multiple cognitive areas, social interaction, sense of purpose, nutritional and dietary improvements, and provide physical movement and exercise benefits. A number of studies also have shown the tremendous value of therapeutic gardens and horticultural activities for residents with varying levels of dementia.
To access the benefits of gardening
and to improve our campus in general, Wesley Towers is excited to have Mr. Don Pfannenstiel
on staff! You may know Don from the
award-winning Don’s Custom Floral of Hutchinson, which he opened in 1983. After "retiring”, Don joined our team last
year and has already transformed many areas of the campus into picturesque
settings with flowers galore. Don’s
creativity and ability to bring gardening to our residents sadly are being
limited by our existing very small and terribly inefficient greenhouse.
To truly tap into Don’s talents and bring gardening to our residents, we need your help! We’ve started a campaign to raise $35,000 for a new Powerhouse Greenhouse for the Wesley Towers campus. A new 30’ x 60’ Powerhouse Greenhouse will allow Don to help bring the benefits of gardening to our residents in an open and safe environment while further beautifying the campus.
