Ground and Grow in the Fall Garden (Ages 12 – 16)
October 6, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 10, 2021
This is an 8-week Horticultural Therapy group for youth ages 12-16 who want to feel more connected to self, others, and their environment through fun and soothing activities in the fall garden. Smell, feel, look, and listen your way through the garden beds as we get our hands in the soil and learn about how plants and people build community and thrive. Develop skills for reducing anxiety and isolation, enhancing self-worth and belonging, and for increased comfort around loss, growth, and other areas of change. This group will meet from 4-5pm for 8 consecutive weeks, and will begin September 22nd and end November 10th. To meet social distancing protocol, this group will be limited to 10 participants. No prior gardening experience necessary! Activities are inclusive and adaptable. Tools will be provided
