Horticultural therapy is the engagement of a person in gardening-related activities, facilitated by a trained therapist, to achieve specific treatment goals as defined by the American Horticultural Therapy Association.
Our Green Thumb Program, led by an experienced master gardener, engages residents in gardening activities like flower arranging and planting to help reduce stress, gently exercise aging joints, and stimulate memory as well as many other therapeutic benefits.
Gardening offers relief from physical and cognitive limitations and has helped our residents learn new skills as well as regain those lost. Our 18,000 square foot InnerWalk courtyard offers a plethora of opportunity for growth with its numerous specialty gardens, equipment and tool-filled garden sheds, and raised planting beds to promote involvement at all levels of functioning.
