Horticulture Therapy Garden Club 2010
at Gardens Without Borders

What is the Garden Club? Horticulture Therapy strives to make gardening and experiences with the natural world accessible to everyone, whether you have physical, emotional, cognitive, or psychological challenges. The Garden Club will host activities that are fun, social and educational for people with a diverse range of abilities. The Garden Club is facilitated by a certified Horticulture Therapist.

Where is the Garden Club? Gardens Without Borders is based out of Innisfree Farm in Royston, BC. Innisfree is a beautiful farm and healing centre, offering organically grown produce, herbal medicine workshops, nutritional education and Horticulture Therapy programs.

When is the Garden Club? The Garden Club will be every Friday, starting June 11, and run until September. Attendance to all Garden Club meetings is not necessary—come only to the ones you like. The activities will start at 10am and are roughly an hour and a half long. Bring a bagged lunch to enjoy on the farm afterwards!

How much does it cost? Each activity is $10, but consideration can be made for those in financial need to help meet the cost. Participants will frequently have the opportunity to take home their garden project. Support workers are free, of course.

June 11: Planting a Tea Cup Garden
June 18: Planting a Boot for Dad (Father's Day activity)
