Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community Enjoys Farm to Table Days

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (Oct. 18, 2018) - Few events have a more loyal turnout than “Shuckin, Breakin’ and Fixin’ Farm to Table Day,” at Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community, an assisted living community serving the Tri-Cities area.

This “all-hands-on-deck” event begins with a number of senior residents going out to local produce stands, picking the food they would enjoy for supper, and preparing the fresh produce for Sycamore Springs’ chef.

Residents not only reap the health benefits of a nutritious home-cooked meal, but also the opportunity to share memories of meal preparation experiences from years past.

“This amazing event has become a regular tradition at Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community. It brings out the farmer, cook, and storyteller in our residents. They have a wonderful time reminiscing about their younger days while they shuck some corn and break some beans. Our farm to table days are good for the body, mind, and soul,” said Rhonda Mitchell, executive director of Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community.

“Our life enrichment team, led by Jordan Bishop, plays such an important role in daily life at Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community. They add joy to residents’ lives by organizing memorable and fun activities like ‘Shuckin, Breakin’ and Fixin’ Farm to Table Day’,” Mitchell said.
