The National Center for Creative Aging is expanding its frontier to the garden with “Creativity Matters: Civic Engagement and Gardening Symposium,” April 12-14, 2010, in Washington, D.C. Events begin with “Generating Community: How Does Our Garden Grow? Intergenerational Program Development,” a training by Susan Perlstein, founder of NCCA and Elders Share the Arts, at IONA Senior Services, recently named a â€œCenter for Excellence in Dementia Careâ€ by the Alzheimerâ€™s Foundation of America. Day 2 is a full-day workshop at the United States Botanic Gardens, located at the foot of the U.S. Capitol, with keynotes and breakout sessions with garden experts. Day 3 focuses on civic engagement and community involvement as participants visit and work at the Common Good City Farm and other D.C. gardens. It's all sponsored by the MetLife Foundation.
