East Bay Senior Independent, April 2018

As the weather warms up, trees grow, flowers bud and bulbs produce bright colors and there’s a natural urge to come out of hibernation and for many of us to start getting our hands dirty. While gardening can be a great form of exercise and stress relief, it can also improve your cardiovascular health. And now that the weather is getting warmer, we’ve put together 5 fun activities to keep you active.

Your monthly calendar of events in the East Bay Senior Independent is here, in 3 languages. Make sure to share with your friends & neighbors.

We'd like to hear from you so send your event information to
