First-of-a-kind greenhouse celebrates completion

Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Several members of the business and medical community, and public attended Roaring River Health and Rehab's Open House event in Cassville, held Sept. 9, to celebrate the completion of its greenhouse and building renovations. The facility and its residents are enjoying a bit of celebrity status as the greenhouse has made news both locally and regionally as the only one in the state of Missouri to be be built in a skilled nursing facility. The owners of the business said they had approached other skilled nursing facilities in the past with the innovative idea but were declined. The residents are allowed to grow their own produce, flowers and plants for their own use, and both residents and staff unanimously agree having living plants to nurture and care for each day, and a peaceful place to go, greatly improves their mental and emotional health and quality of life.
