worksite wellness gardens
Program Type: Local Effort - Programs and/or activities that have not been evaluated but are identified by local programs as producing positive results.
Raised bed gardens have been places at 5 sites in the Oklahoma City Area. The gardens are planted and maintained by the employees during their 15 min. breaks at the worksite. 2-5 employeess share the 4 x 8 foot beds. The small amount of time spent working their shared garden has provided a healty alternative for the workday break periods. Many of the partisipants took the knowledge they gained from building the garden beds and extended it to their homes. The garden became a family fitness activity.
