winter therapeutic horticulture program
During the winter months we will bring the garden to you! The Winter Green program seeks to connect people with plants, to engage their senses and provide social enrichment. Offered November through March, Winter Green provides a sensory tour of potted plants and a hands-on activity of your choice at your facility.
- Making a Topiary
Learn and perform the steps to create a topiary frame, transplant an ivy plant and train the plant to the frame. This activity encourages fine motor skills and creative expression through hands-on work with plant, soil and topiary materials.
- Plant Propagation
This activity is hands-on work with plants and soil materials. Participants learn to make stem cuttings from hardy houseplants to take home and enjoy. The activity develops fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination in a highly social setting.
- Pretty Pots

This activity offers hands-on experience in creating an open air terrarium. Participants learn how to make a terrarium for hardy houseplants to take home and enjoy. This activity develops fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination in a highly social setting.
