Garden Therapy

Garden Therapy's aim is to aid the physical, mental and emotional health of persons in the community who are facing personal challenges such as physical disability, homelessness, violence,  mental illness, old age, etc. We develop garden-related activities that inspire creativity and personal achievement for the individuals we serve. See planned activities for 2021-2022, below.

The decorating of Crane House was a wonderful event, as it is every year. See the photos of this year's decorating extravaganza. Thank you to everyone involved in keeping this beloved tradition alive. What an amazing way to end each year. 

 

Garden Therapy is  providing a floral arrangement each month to the stressed-out, over-worked, and under-appreciated nursing staff at Mountainside Hospital.  Next delivery March 9th. At left, see October's richly autumnal arrangement spilling over the nurses' desk at Mountainside.
