Bishop’s Commons residents Adopt Planter Boxes and Set about Making Them Their Own


OSWEGO – Residents at Bishop’s Commons in Oswego have “adopted” standing planters that can be found near the walkways surrounding the residence and have set about personalizing them to reflect each individual’s unique taste and preferences.

By adopting a planter which stands about three feet high, each resident has selected their favorite things to grow whether flowers or vegetables, and after planting has taken on the responsibility of making sure the planters are well cared for throughout the summer.

“The planter project has turned out to be a lot of fun for our folks, many of whom had enjoyed tending their own gardens throughout their lives,” said Cheryl Cullinan, director of activities. “We supply the planters, dirt and tools while our residents picked out some of their favorite flowers or vegetables to plant; and have been caring for their planters’ diligently for the last few weeks. The planters have become a source of pride and add to the overall attractiveness of the grounds around Bishop’s Commons.”
