VHCC garden club

Versailles Health Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, is always busy creating new and exciting opportunities for residents and family members to come together. Everyone enjoys having a fun time working together within the local community on enriching projects.  Recently, VHCC has begun planting flowers and garden vegetables in their flower beds. 

VHCC residents also enjoy working on the raised flower beds provided and located at the Worch Memorial Public Library.  All of our flower beds are easily accessible while standing or sitting in their chair.  This makes it easier for individuals to access the flower beds.  Any items used in the flower beds must be organic, so it is safe for everyone to use.

The VHCC activity department is proud to announce the addition of Mother Nature’s Original Fertilizer which is being used in their garden areas.  Family members and residents enjoy using the organic natural soil enhancer in the flower beds because it is easy to work with and locally manufactured.  This special fertilizer offers healthier growth options for plants, and was donated by long-term care resident Delores William’s family, from Green Thumb Worm Castings, LLC.

The fertilizer is created from worm castings.  These worm castings come from rich digested soil that the worms leave behind.  They are rich in nutrients and microorganisms that are beneficial for plant growth.  They also fight disease to help keep the plants healthy and productive year long.

Chemicals are not used in the production of the fertilizer and it is safe to use around children and pets.  There is no odor to worry about, and it will not damage the plants.  Directions on how to use the fertilizer for optimum growth is included in their brochure.  More information on this fertilizer can be found at their website:

VHCC invites everyone to stop by and see how beautiful their flowers are throughout the summer.  Stop in for a visit and see our beautiful enclosed courtyards!
