Children will engage in a weekly gardening activity while learning healthy coping and socialization skills.
Nourish your child’s mind and body by engaging them in an outdoor activity that allows for healthy socialization, movement, skills building and exploration of a healthy balanced lifestyle. We will be practicing mindfulness, discussing healthy food choices, and observing the many lessons that nature has to offer on resilience, responsibility and the possibility for positive growth and change. Some of the emotional benefits of horticultural therapy include improved self-esteem and self-confidence and enhanced emotional regulation skills.
Please let us know if your child has any allergies to any plants including herbs, vegetables and fruits.
Your child is welcome to attend just one or all six of our Mindful Gardeners Sessions. Attending as many as possible will provide your child with the skills and growth intended from this program.
$65 per single session – Pay for all 6 weeks in full $300 (save $90) / Some insurance coverage possible.
A $65 deposit is required to reserve your child’s spot. This $65 will be applied to your full balance due based on how many sessions your child will attend. Should your insurance cover your child’s session in full we will refund your deposit.
If you plan to sign up for all six weeks, please register for the 1st week below, pay your deposit, and we will contact you with an invoice to receive the 6 week discounted price.
