Live Well Community Garden

Welcome to the homepage for the Live Well Community Garden at Sexton Hall!

In partnership with the Forsyth County Master Gardeners and the Boy Scouts of America, this garden is an extension of Forsyth County Senior Services' mission to help adults age well by living a healthy and active lifestyle.

How Does Our Garden Grow?

A special thank you to everyone who came out to Sexton Hall at the end of September to kick-off the pollinator garden located at the back of the building.  It is amazing what can be accomplished in just a few short weeks.  Volunteers from West Forsyth High School, Forsyth County Master Gardeners, and members of the Live Well Garden Club got their hands dirty prepping the ground, planting the plants, and mulching the bed, and all their help was invaluable in getting this special project started before the first frost sets in.  Beyond the hours contributed by these helpful hands, this garden grows with funding from the Georgia Master Garden Association, Forsyth County Master Gardeners, and Forsyth County Senior Services.

Our Mission

The mission of Forsyth County's Senior Services Department is to be the focal point where older adults gather for services and activities that respond to their diverse needs and interests, enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage involvement in their community through programs designed to reduce isolation, improve nutritional health, support health and community education and provide access to more extensive services for seniors, caregivers and their families.
