Discovery of the natural environment and world is the focus of the horticulture creative arts center. Through exposure to our aviary, turtle aquarium and indoor gardens, participants are exposed to the natural world and encouraged to "play in the dirt."
Our participants, with limited ability to explore the great outdoors, are able to create, grow, and participate in the beauty of nature.
Studying nature, weather, space, oceans, desserts, animals, fish, and insects exposes our participants to the wonder and amazement of the natural world. Our wheelchair accessible greenhouse allows residents to participate first hand in the growing, nurturing, and harvesting of edible plants and vegetables.
Our pond and memory garden soothes the senses with lights, sounds and fragrant flowers. Activities in the horticultural creative arts center include studying thematic units, tending to the indoor and outdoor gardens, sand art, water play, natural arts, and light studies.
