LIMEPORT, Pa., (June 2022) — New Vitae Wellness and Recovery recently launched two garden projects at one of its licensed personal care homes, affirming the organization’s commitment to a philosophy of community-based learning and fellowship for residents and staff.
To support the renewal of hope in a “post-pandemic” world, the projects at Mount Trexler Manor include a Serenity Garden, located near a statue on the home’s grounds, and a Community Garden, which will be part of the family picnic area. The licensed personal care home serves individuals with behavioral health diagnoses and brain injuries, as well as veterans.
“We are excited to offer these garden projects as part of our renewed commitment to serving our community,” said Judith O. Yanacek, President and CEO of New Vitae Wellness and Recovery. “Our founder, Anne Mills, understood the vital need for community revitalization and rejuvenation. She understood that each season brings its own process for change and purposeful planning for growth. We hope to continue to serve her vision through projects like these gardens, changing people’s lives through the power of community.”
For this project, New Vitae has partnered with Blue Moon Acres, a Bucks County community farm which donated transplants and seeds to support the Community Garden project. In addition, more than 500 flower and vegetable seeds were donated by New Vitae’s Director of Human Resources, Samantha Perch, to help create the garden.
Mount Trexler Manor is home to three of the four licensed personal care home options within the New Vitae Wellness and Recovery continuum of residential care. The property covers more than 28 acres of land in Lehigh County. The facility offers a variety of services to residents, including medical care, assistance with the development of healthy living skills, and vocational assistance.
