Challenge

A therapeutic garden is a plant-dominated environment purposefully designed to facilitate passive and active interaction with the healing elements of nature. Working in a garden can offer many benefits for people with disabilities, including improving communication and social skills, developing fine motor skills, concentration levels, stamina, hand-eye coordination, overall fitness and a sense of independence and control.

Solution

This therapeutic area will promote creativity, activity, friendships and connection, all critical elements of a healthy community experience. The allotted plot will be worked on by residents under the guidance of gardening therapists, as they grow organic vegetables, flowers and a variety of fruit trees.

Long-Term Impact

The majority of the 115 residents and external school students will benefit from this landscape-designed space. Family members visiting their loved ones will also be able to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and participate in many of the community activities.
