About Us

Looking for a meaningful career at an innovative start-up within a growing industry? Join the smart, swift, and forward-thinking team at Eldergrow—we bring herb and flower gardens inside senior living communities across the United States. Eldergrow completed the Jones & Foster Accelerator for Innovative StartUps in 2015 and we’re now in over 22 states. We’re proud of our current partnerships with national brands including Merrill Gardens, Leisure Care, Aegis Living, and Legend Senior Living.

We’re in a powerful moment of growth and our vision is to continue to own this space that connects nature to our elders living in senior living communities — so that our elders can benefit from the power of therapeutic horticulture. Not only does therapeutic horticulture help to improve motor skills, self-esteem, and sleep—it’s been documented to reduce dementia risk factors by 36%.

We are looking for dynamic individuals who can continue our company’s acceleration and can help us grow.

What We Believe:

We believe our elders matter. Eldergrow empowers senior citizens physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually through the transformative magic of therapeutic gardening.

How it works:

Our mobile, wood gardens are handcrafted by Military Veterans and other adults living with disabilities in the Pacific Northwest and delivered to senior living communities. Residents tend to the gardens and receive a sense of renewed purpose. We offer two programs: A therapeutic horticulture program delivered by Expert Educators who host therapeutic gardening classes and maintain the sensory gardens. Our new culinary herb garden is D-I-Y programs for facilities and brings ‘farm to fork’ into senior living through an innovative Herb of the Month program. We also offer two innovative kits.

What people are saying:

We’re delighted to have national press from The Oregonian, The Coloradoan, to McKnights Long-Term Care News, to name a few. And we believe this is only the beginning! We’re excited to grow our team and leverage your powerful skills to light up the lives of more seniors, bring more clients on board, and gain global awareness about Therapeutic Gardening and how Eldergrow can help.
