Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey Announces Gardening Program at Friendship House Adult Day Care
Date:8/1/2013

iding projects that include education and hands-on participation to special needs populations.

Ms. McDonald reports that the enthusiasm for the project from volunteers was matched by the response from the Friendship House clients. She says, “Gardening is a part of many of our clients’ history but health related issues now make it challenging for them to continue gardening on their own. The gardening program at Friendship House allows our clients to experience the great joy of growing mint, basil, tomatoes, squash and flowers, and their smiles make the garden worth every moment spent to create it.”

Caregivers and Friendship House staff report that clients benefit from the Friendship House garden in many ways, including physical exercise, sensory stimulation from the sight and smells, and social interaction with each other, Master Gardeners and other volunteers. Caregivers appreciate the garden as well since it provides a new and beneficial activity for them to perform with their loved one with the help of staff and volunteers.
