Garden Therapy

Hands-on Garden Therapy Project

The Garden Therapy Committee, chaired by Joan Yagoda with members Lorraine Schlemmer and Marilyn Stone, brings a monthly craft project to a senior center or skilled nursing facility in Scottsdale. The object is to enhance the aesthetic quality of life for the residents by providing them the opportunity to create decorative objects to display in their rooms. The objects include at least one natural element and are easy to assemble for often challenged hands. It is a labor of love for committee members and a source of pleasure for the residents.
