Honeybee sanctuary featured in the Journal on Active Aging magazine

Piedmont Gardens’ honeybee sanctuary, located on the rooftop of the Village our skilled nursing center, was recently featured in the Journal on Active Aging magazine.

The magazine, published by International Council on Active Aging, highlighted the community’s search for ways to create a garden that was environmentally friendly and a beautiful space for residents to enjoy. After months of planning, they hatched an unconventional idea that included fruit trees, vegetables, flowers and honey bees.

In October 2017, Piedmont Gardens received the ICAA Innovators Green Award—an annual competition that’s open to organizations that share ICAA’s goals of changing society’s perceptions of aging and improving the quality of life for older adults.
