New garden space for care home on Bernard Ave

March 18, 2015 - 2:14 PM

KELOWNA – David Lloyd Jones Home, located at 934 Bernard Ave, has begun planning a new outdoor garden space for its residents.

Jonathan Clare, Residential Manager at David Lloyd Jones Home explains, “We are truly blessed to live in an area where we can enjoy the outdoors virtually year round.  Those who call David Lloyd Jones home need an accessible and attractive outdoor area to enjoy with their friends and families”.

The garden space will be located in front of the building off the sidewalk, adding to the beautification of Bernard Ave, and be appreciated by residents and pedestrians alike.  Project costs are estimated at $45,000, over half of which have been generously donated by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 26. KGH Foundation will be raising the remaining $20,000 and is currently accepting donations from family members and the community.

To get involved, visit David Lloyd Jones Home in person, or bit.ly/DLJGarden.
