Celebrating Spring at Clark’s Franklin Campus

At Clark Retirement, we take pride in making our community a beautiful and lively place for our residents. This spring, our residents have been actively engaging in gardening, turning our campus into a vibrant oasis. From raised-bed gardens to pots on patios, every space is a chance to nurture nature. Our gardens are not just about flowers; they’re about fostering a habitat for pollinators like bees and butterflies. Even a small pot on your patio can make a big difference!
