Therapy Celebration Garden

Everyone in Canada is invited to Live the Garden Life, and share their garden. Did you know your garden is an important space for personal health and healing

What are you celebrating? 

Putting some time into your garden, getting exercise and fresh air outdoors, and getting your hands in touch with the soil biome has been shown to reduce stress and make people feel better and healthier. Sensory inputs from gardens like fragrances, sounds, visual design and colour cues, taste and touch have all been shown to have beneficial effects. More and more health care facilities are adding therapeutic gardens to help patients recover. 

By signing up your garden as a Therapeutic Celebration Garden you will be helping others learn from your gardening success. It’s an expression of how your garden was and continues to make you feel?
