Will you be planting seeds of hope May 17th?

Will you be planting seeds of hope May 17th?

Every spring, I can’t wait to get my trowel in hand and bring my garden back to life again. It’s a ritual of rebirth that allows me to put even the worst of winters behind me. And it seems as if this interest has finally aligned with another passion: creating a world without Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.

That’s what makes me so excited about our latest campaign. On May 17, we are encouraging Ontarians to plant Forget Me Not seeds.  Forget Me Nots are the official flower of the Alzheimer Society. They work great in pots or groundcover and come back year after year. But most importantly, we want them to become a symbol of hope for those affected by the disease.

We have a limited quantity of seeds available to distribute across Ontario. Whether you know someone who has been touched by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia or not, you can take part by pledging to plant #SeedsofHope, sharing with friends and family and planting your Forget Me Not flowers in May.
