Marie's green thumb extends beyond her apartment to the community’s rock garden. Taking the initiative to revive the garden, she collaborated with another resident and enlisted the help of her grandson. The once lifeless space transformed into a vibrant haven, bringing joy to residents who now gather to admire the blooming flowers and appreciate the beauty of shared efforts.

The Benefits of a Pet-Friendly Environment
