Growing The Garden
How does your garden grow? It grows with a senior’s love and care. Vital Aging of Williamsburg County, Inc., a non-profit that serves local seniors, has been growing in everything it touches. Because of this, the business has been selected for the Williamsburg Hometown Chamber’s Image Award.

Inside, activities include Walk-With-Ease (an Arthritis Foundation program) and Bingocize, an evidence-based program that strategically combines the game of bingo, exercise, and/or health education. Vital Aging recently signed a partnership agreement with the South Carolina State University’s 1890 Research and Extension that provides nutrition education.
