The garden was custom designed by Brant Burns, local Scout, as his Eagle Scout service project. Beaumont and Southeast Texas have a wonderful history of scouting and many have gone on to reach Eagle Scout. Beyond personal achievement, reaching Eagle Scout often helps young men in college, the military, and in the work place.

Thank-you Brant for choosing Best Year’s Center for your project- you did a wonderful job!Beaumont Senior Activities, senior fun Beaumont Tx, senior garden Beaumont Tx, senior entertainment Beaumont Tx, senior center Beaumont Tx, senior fun Beaumont Tx, gardening for senior citizens Beaumont Tx, raised garden Beaumont Tx

Brant built a raised garden bed so our members can enjoy herbs, vegetables, and colorful flowers at waist high view. Brant’s vision was very appropriate. Raised gardens are wonderful for seniors as they reduce the stress and strain of repeatedly bending over when planting, weeding, or harvesting. The new garden may be found in the middle outside atrium, located between the quilting room and the auditorium. The door leading to the outside atrium is across from the front hall Library.

The project was completed in late July 2012 during a busy time for this high school graduate who was also preparing for his big move to college at Texas A & M.

Best Year’s is appreciative to all of those in the community who assisted Brant as he coordinated the planning and construction. Some of those who really went above and beyond include Mr. Greg Wall, Scout Master; Mr. Conroy Hughes, Assistant Scout Master; members from Scout Troop 177; Micha Myers, Master Gardener, City of Beaumont Parks Administrator.

Thank-you to Brant’s supportive parents as well!

With the completion of the garden, it is a perfect time to join our new “Garden Tip” Club that meets the 2nd Thursday of each month at Best Year’s Center. Thank-you to Vida Hawn and Mitti Steel who provide great season garden tips each month. There’s something for those with green thumbs and those who have trouble growing cactus alike.

Best Year’s also welcomes volunteers who would like to dedicate a few minutes each week to watering and maintaining our beautiful new garden. This is a great activity for those who no longer maintain a garden at home, but miss being involved with raising plants and seeing them grow.

Best Year’s senior visitors will enjoy herbs, fruits, and all the vegetables that do well in a contained raised bed.

Thank-you again Brant and best wishes for a wonderful college experience at A&M.

Best Year’s Senior Center invites our local seniors to visit the garden and to participate in the many events for seniors including playing pool, dance and exercise, quilting, a gift shop with great values, and much much more
