Garden Therapy moves Indoors

These Portable Gardens provide a base for involving senior adults and others as "caregivers" of a living display. Participants are able to resume their gardening interests, normally limited inside a residential or care facility. The garden can serve as a focal point for group activity at a fixed location, or be easily wheeled to a resident's room or into multi-purpose areas.

For groups, garden therapy increases levels of cooperation, planning, and responsibility. As a cooperative activity, people can plant the soil-filled bed of the Portable Garden, or each person can contribute their own potted plant to develop in the garden's tub. For individuals, participation improves muscle coordination and motor skills in a relaxing activity.

  • A year-round, independent or group activity

  • Enriches life with beauty and a link to nature

  • Stimulates conversation; provides therapeutic options

  • Flexibility and minimal maintenance for facility workers

  • Garden design allows use when seated, standing, or in bed

Seed starting or propogation

Non-therapeutic use

 

A Portable Garden is the flexible way to add a planting to any area. As a seasonal display, one can easily start plants indoors and later move the blooming garden outdoors. The mobile unit serves as a temporary platform for gardens wheeled into a lobby, conference room, or reception hall.

 

Home gardeners find our garden perfect for seed starting in early Spring, later converting the garden to a display area for treasured indoor plants through the Summer and Fall.

 

Elementary schools can use gardens as planting projects in nature education, even during the Winter. Students enjoy planting "their pot of seeds" and seeing it grow with others within this mobile environment. The Portable Garden can be wheeled easily out of a classroom when needed.
