Description:

Create a healing garden for our youth at Connections.Because sometimes, our youth are unable to leave the facility, this would serve as a "getaway or quiet zone." Our youth desperately need this quiet area. 

Two ways to help: 

1. Help purchase supplies for the garden at https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/BY36RU9J5F5C/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex

AND/OR
 
2. Create the garden on site. 
Please bring gardening supplies: 
         - rake
         - gloves
         - Shovel
         - tree trimmers 
         - trash bags 

 

"He who plants a garden, plants happiness.." Research studies show that gardens reduce stress and promote a sense of wellbeing. This leads to measurable psychological, physiological, and behavioral benefits, such as reduced anxiety, sadness, and other negative moods, lower blood pressure and improved immune functioning, and better compliance with treatment protocol. Our youth and I have sat down, and created a list, of items they believe would help "calm and soothe" them.
