Cultivating a garden offers a wealth of advantages, especially for seniors.

It’s a fulfilling activity that not only beautifies the environment but also provides a sense of accomplishment and purpose.

Gardening at Starling at Ponte Vedra is not just about nurturing plants; it’s a fulfilling experience that yields fresh, aromatic ingredients right from our garden to the dining table. We encourage our residents to engage in gardening, sharpening their skills and taking pride in the herbs they cultivate. Our chefs take delight in using these homegrown treasures to craft exquisite farm-to-table culinary experiences.

The simple pleasures of gardening extend beyond what is reaped; they connect us with nature and provide a therapeutic escape. This bond with the earth is known to enhance mental and physical health, contributing to a fulfilling and serene retirement.

A green thumb does more than cultivate plants— it cultivates community. Sharing the fruits of one’s labor with neighbors fosters a warm, communal spirit. Whether it’s a shared meal or a community potluck, the act of coming together over homegrown food is a cornerstone of life at Starling.

Embracing gardening offers numerous benefits for all. It’s a pastime that enriches meals with flavor, life with joy, and an overall healthier well-being. At Starling, we prioritize the quality of life, offering a nurturing environment where gardening is just one of the many pastime activities. We invite you to visit and explore our luxurious assisted living and memory care residences, and see why our community is a place our residents are proud to call home.
