Eldergrow™ offers senior care organizations a therapeutic connection to nature through innovative gardening products and services. The mobile, sensory garden brings nature inside 12 months a year. Eldergrow Educators teach evidence-based, therapeutic horticulture classes that improve life for the growing community of elders living in residential and nursing care. Residents engage in meaningful ways with the Eldergrow garden: physically, socially, cognitively, creatively, sustainably, and spiritually.
The therapeutic sensory garden is part of the therapeutic horticulture program, which includes onsite Educators who teach therapeutic gardening classes and provide garden maintenance. This is one of many services and activities Eldergrow provides. Each program is accessible for seated, wheeled, or standing gardners with non-toxic plants and organic soil so the residents can garden all year long.
