Despite the Weather…Ground is Broken for the First Skilled Nursing Green House homes in Minnesota

By / Posted on May 13th, 2013

We all know how crazy the weather has been this past winter…but who would have thought snowflakes would fall on a May 1st groundbreaking ceremony? Well, that’s exactly what greeted the guests for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota ceremony to launch the construction of six Green House homes on their campus.

The $45 million project will provide a variety of living options for Elders including the skilled nursing services in the Green House homes which will be called “Episcopal Church Home – The Gardens”.  Episcopal Homes has been providing house and care for Elder for more than 100 years in St. Paul, Minnesota. The homes are slated to be open in late 2014.

We all know how important nature is to all of us, especially our Elders in Green House homes…so our friends at Episcopal Homes plan to do something special with the ground flung into that wheelbarrow. It will be saved and used in the future greenspace and two-story indoor garden. Such a wonderful and thoughtful idea!
