The Mindful Aging Project (MAP) is a collaboration between Factr and the African Community Health Institute which aims to decrease health disparities and improve the health and wellness of older newcomers and promote mindful aging. A healthy and mindful lifestyle begins at the roots, so this project will utilize a community garden to host several activities.
- A healthy produce and meditation garden is where participants can grow their own fruits and vegetables and cultivate a connection to the environment through meditation.
- Their Grandchildren will be encouraged to join the elders so that inter-generational bonding can be strengthened.
- Nutritional classes will share information on healthy eating and active living through a licensed nutritionist.
- Group exercises, including Yoga, Tai Chi will promote healthy mind-body connections.
