Manor House Creates Interactive Plant Walk For Residents

Manor House, an ACTS Retirement-Life Community in Seaford, DE recently installed Plants Map Signs creating an interactive walking trail for their residents.

actsDeborah Reeves, Manor House Resident Service Director said, “The residents came and said ‘Could we have labels, plant markers like you would find in Longwood Gardens?'”

Using Plants Map Signs that identify the trees along the trail, the residents can now walk with their smart phones, scanning the QR codes on signs along the path to learn all about the dozens of varieties of trees and plants along the way.

Enjoy and please share the video from ABC Channel 6 in Philadelphia who covered the story.
