Hello from Gulfport Florida!

Post  funkywtboy on 9/4/2014, 11:44 am

 Been SFG for over 20 years. (finally got it right when Mel's book came out)  As an Activity Director in nursing homes, every one I worked in eventually had a SFG. Was always successful. Mel and I actually exchanged letters back then about SFG in a nursing home setting. I was touched by his personal attention, and support. Such a great way to garden.

Hi Funkywtboy!  Welcome to the forum.

I'm sure that you'll be able to give lots of advice since you've actually been doing SFG for so long...!  I look forward to seeing you post frequently.

It's great that you did something positive like that in nursing homes. The people there don't tend to be mobile, so I'm sure they really appreciate finding new and intriguing things close at hand.
