Garden Therapy has been an ongoing and satisfying project for many years. Garden club members visit a Coral Gables senior retirement/rehabilitation center or school, arms loaded with flowers and small vases to help the participants arrange bouquets to take back to their rooms or home.
We have gone to the Riviera Health Resort for the past several years. This Fall, 2022, we have included Crystal Academy, a school for children with disabilities. November 22nd, 2022, our Chair arranged an activity with the students, who loved the flowers, were engaged, and enjoyed participating. It was a wonderful experience, and sure to be on a regular Garden Therapy schedule. The club is so grateful to have Carmen Cason as the Chair for this event for several years, who does a fantastic job organizing our volunteers.
