Green Valley Enterprises is bringing new life to its campus with an upgrade of the Green Valley patio, providing a tranquil location for people to relax as well as a learning environment for those who use its programs for individuals with diverse abilities.
The renovated patio at Green Valley Enterprises is “a welcoming space to refresh and enjoy the tranquility,” says CEO Barb LeDuc.
Green Valley Enterprises, a division of Opportunities, began working on the garden last fall, bringing new life in the space behind the facility at 1223 Madison Street.
“The garden pathway is such a unique and inviting space, which elevates opportunities for all of our stakeholders, throughout all the four seasons,” said Barb LeDuc, CEO of Opportunities Inc. and Green Valley Enterprises. “It promotes diversity and inclusion for individuals with disabilities, memory challenges and other difficult life circumstances.”
The first phase of the project includes the addition of flowers, fresh plants and patio furniture, and reviving the pergola.
