Gardening, Yoga, & Community Enrichment

Tuesday, 9AM - 3PM

Enjoy some fresh air and activity while learning to care for plants and harvest produce. The merits of horticulture therapy are well documented and include physical, intellectual, and social benefits. In addition to learning about plants and gardening, participants will build skills in areas of coordination, problem solving, and following directions. In case of inclement weather, the group will stay indoors. 

Stretch out with gentle movements and breath deep during yoga class with Kelly. If weather permits, we'll do yoga outdoors. The remainder of the day will be spent enjoying a local activity or taking advantage of community resources. 

Drop off/Pick up at the Crawford House
