Residents Participate in Raised Garden Horticultural Project
On June 16th, Pat Czarnecki, the owner of Green'ergy, LLC, offered a Horticultural Session to our residents. The project was a Raised Garden Box Planting, and the finished product is displayed adjacent to our front entry, for all to see.
The weather proved to be lovely for the program, which was held outside of the Cheshire Solarium. Throughout the session Pat, who is a registered horticultural therapist, provided information on plant life and gardening tips, and demonstrated technique to our residents, Residents then put these tips to work, and we now have a Raised Garden of delightful plants, flowers and herbs.
As reported by the American Horticultural Therapy Association, in physical rehabilitation, this therapy can "help strengthen muscles, and improve coordination, balance, and endurance." We appreciated the opportunity to participate in this great activity, and look forward to the next session, which will focus on indoor planting.
Thank you, Pat!
