The Novato Independent Elders Program is looking for volunteers to help Novato seniors with their overgrown yards. Spring is here and the weeds are high. Untidy yards can lead to complaints from landlords and neighbors and can cause anxiety, frustration and depression for seniors.
If you have some time to spare, enjoy gardening, and would like to help a fellow citizen, call NIEP at 899-8296.
To participate in the program seniors must be lower income and physically unable to do the work themselves.
NIEP is a program of Episcopal Senior Community and operates out of Margaret Todd Senior Center.
