Garden Club

Giving Residents A Chance To Grow
Outside activities like our Garden Club give residents a chance to enjoy the many benefits of being outdoors and interacting with others while caring for living, growing plants.

Warm, sunny days are perfect for residents who participate in Willowbend’s Garden Club. That’s when we venture out into the courtyard to enjoy the beautiful weather and see the encouraging growth of our various garden plants. There’s a real healing power for our residents when they use their hands to plant seeds in soil and water those plants week in and week out.

Some of the benefits of plant therapy include:

  • Encourages physical activity
  • Renews feeling of purpose and meaning
  • Improves focus
  • Relieves stress
  • Provides opportunity for socializing

There’s also a great joy and sense of accomplishment that comes with seeing the results of their efforts … a flower in bloom or a fresh vegetable ready to be picked.
