A garden is
a great place
to outgrow
limitations.

GARDEN THERAPY

Reduce Isolation,
Regrow Social Connections,
Provide Purpose.

Disability, illness and other barriers to full health and well-being can result in lives that are disconnected from nature with limited opportunities for social recreation with a purpose.

Garden Therapy in a supportive and safe environment can be a source of motivation that promotes inclusion, rebuilds community connections, and empowers through hands-on learning.
