HORTICULTURAL THERAPY GARDENS

Horticultural Therapy uses plants, gardening activities, and the power of nature in professional therapy and rehabilitation programs as well as in home-garden settings. It is a holistic approach that supports the social, psychological, and physical needs of people who are physically- and/or mentally-challenged ~ no matter what their age ~ as it nurtures body, mind, and spirit.

Projects

Ability Beyond Disability, Ridgefield, CT. ~ J. Metzger

In 2006, Beau's Bouquets designed a Horticultural Therapy Garden in Ridgefield, CT for Ability Beyond Disability.

This garden is utilized by the residents who find the experience of engaging in tending the garden both rewarding and nurturing. They grow, attend to, and use the vegetables and herbs harvested from the raised-bed gardens for preparing snacks and meals, which cultivates a sense of purpose in their lives. In addition, the flowerbeds attract a wide variety of butterflies and birds that are enjoyed by all.
