The community is invited to a day-long gardening program aimed at connecting participants who are grieving with nature to aid in healing.
This program will offer guidance from a Master Gardener while participants engage in hands-on cleaning, pruning and planting. Participants will also learn how to plant a garden that is low maintenance and colorful throughout the season.
Working with our hands, and connecting with nature are beneficial ways to reduce stress during difficult times. Engaging in creative activities can also provide a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
A grief counselor will be present to provide support throughout the day. There will also be an opportunity to leave the name of your loved one on a special stone in the garden.
The session is free and open to anyone in the community, whether or not they have had a prior relationship with Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Attendees should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes (You might get dirty).
Pre-registration is requested.
