Growing older does not mean that options for activity are limited. On the contrary, studies show that staying active mentally and physically as we age is the key to longevity.

Take a Virtual Cooking Class
Even if you are well-adept at cooking, there are always new skills and recipes to learn to keep things interesting in the kitchen. One of the benefits of the virtual environment we have all been living through the past two years is that options for virtual learning are more plentiful than ever before. Whether you want to learn French pastry from a chef in Versailles or are determined to master Korean cuisine, there are many online courses available.
Try Sprouting Seedlings Indoors
While we wait for the warmth and sunshine of spring, bring the outdoors inside by starting herb seed sprouts indoors. When the threat of frost is over, transfer the seedlings to the Harbor Heights community herb patches located on the Sky Terrace. Some herbs that are among the easiest to grow from seed are basil, mint, parsley, chives, and dill. If you are new to gardening, check out this website for a quick guide to indoor seed starting.
