Adopt A Garden

Our Adopt-A-Garden Program provides opportunity for individuals or groups to get involved with our organization's mission to live a healthy lifestyle though community participation and collaboration. Adopting a garden provides social opportunities while being active at your own pace.

 

At Friends For Fitness, we offer inspirational support and encouragement in striving for active lifestyles.  We know what it's like to live with health conditions ourselves and understand that through social interaction, physical fitness, and the great outdoors we can achieve healthier lifestyles.

 

The Adopt-A-Garden Program requires weeding, watering, landscaping, and regular maintenance of an individual's garden area while having fun!
