Healing Garden Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
October 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join Bucks County Audubon Society as we proudly unveil our new Healing Garden! The garden was designed to provide a quiet and peaceful place for small groups of adults and children with autism and special needs to connect with nature. Nature has been found to have many healing property for everyone, but especially with this underserved audience.
Thanks to funding from Foundations Community Partnership, BCAS has been able to work with partners Peaceful Living and horticultural therapist and landscape designer, Nancy Minnich to create this healing oasis. Construction and planting of the garden has been done with adults from Peaceful Living, BCAS volunteers, Nancy Minnich, and horticulture therapy student Joan Stelmach.
Join us as we celebrate the opening of this beautiful garden. The program will include sample horticultural therapy activities, and a change for everyone to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with nature.
