Meeting Your Needs

CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Whether your child needs to work on sensory processing, fine, gross, or visual motor skills, therapy in the garden doesn't feel like work! Your child will feel successful completing a variety of therapeutic activities such as planting a garden or engaging in nature-based crafts.

SENIOR SUPPORT

Healthy aging includes not only physical wellness, but social and emotional wellness too. Senior gardening groups keep bodies and minds active and healthy. Blossom Therapeutic Services run a variety of groups including dementia engagement, stroke support and social wellness groups in care facilities and local community settings.
