Outdoor Gardens

Each of our residents has the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful landscaping, courtyards, and gardens.

At the Lutheran Home we understand the importance of fresh air and nature. When the weather is nice, we want our residents to enjoy the outdoors. Davenport Lutheran Home boasts two beautiful courtyards. The main courtyard and the special care unit courtyard are enjoyed during the spring, summer, and fall.







The Lutheran Home Campuses offer many gardens for resident enjoyment. Each year local volunteers and staff members help our residents plant the gardens.

Vinton Lutheran Home Dining Services Director, Justin Ealy works in the herb garden




Two of the gardens at the Vinton Lutheran Home include a vegetable plot and an herb bunk. Staff and residents enjoy working in these areas. The fruits, vegetables and herbs are often used in Lutheran Home entrees and residents are encouraged to harvest and take home any fruits or vegetables for their own consumption.









The Lutheran Home staff take pride in the appearance of our campuses, as do our residents. Many of our residents enjoy bird feeders, hanging plants, etc. outside of their room windows and enjoy taking care of them.
