The planting begins
The sunny day was perfect for planting at the Anchorage Pioneer Home. Four new planter boxes, plants and soil were generously donated by Home Depot, and store employees placed the boxes with care.

Built at an easily accessible height for the residents to work their gardens, the planter boxes are lined and ready for soil. Residents have their gloves and shovels ready for another green and colorful summer at the Anchorage Pioneer Home.
