Garden Club Tonight!! Program on Enabling Gardens & Horticultural Therapy.Posted Friday, April 25, 2008, at 11:35 AM
Tonight at 6:30 we will have another garden club get together. Remember, this is for everyone, especially those who are addicted to gardening of ALL types.
It will be held at the Hong Kong restaurant on Madison Street in Shelbyville.
At members request, we will have about a 30-45 minute presentation on gardens that are adapted for those who are physically limited or are used in horticultural therapy programs.
We will review selecting a site, analyzing the needs of those who will use it, where to get more ideas and encouragement, types of gardens that can be adapted for wheelchair bound, visually impaired, children, as classrooms, therapeutic, retirement or nursing homes, mental hospitals, alzheimer patients, hospice, or meditation. Whew, I got to take a breath.
Also being discussed will be raised beds, aquatic, containers, seating, trellises, table planters, other vertical structures, types of plants and plants.
We will also decide tonight if we will change the meeting time, day of the week and location to try to accommodate other folks. If you have some ideas, we want to hear from you.
Hope to see you there.
