Gardening as therapy
I am looking for some ideas to encourage elderly people with some activities to do with plants. In the hope of putting a smile on their face, and doing something creative.
I wonder if anybody knows of anything like this, perhaps in a nursing home environment, or retirement home.
I need some ideas on how to get the ball rolling, how to approach establishments, and what sort of activity would work best.
I am thinking something like doing cuttings, and potting them up, and each resident could have the plant in their room. I dont know...any better suggestions.
Thanks for your help.
I have training in Horticulture.
