Horticulture Corner: Rose Therapy

Join Pam Greenewald of Rose Garden Angels, a nonprofit that uses horticultural therapy for mental, physical, and spiritual healing. The organization works with veterans suffering from PTSD and other combat-related disabilities to grow roses which are sold to create a source of income for the participants. One of those veterans, Tayden Haile of Orange Park, joins Greenewald for the presentation.

The program is designed to improve the the participants’ independence by developing or enhancing stress-management techniques, emotional balance, and psychological well-being through working with nature.

Benefits of horticultural therapy include healing of body, mind, and spirit through physical activity, relaxation, enjoyment, skill development, creative expression, sensory stimulation, intellectual and personal growth, social interaction, and a sense of productivity and self-satisfaction.

This program will be offered in-person at the Garden Club and simultaneously on Zoom. Seating at the Garden Club is limited, so register today. COVID-19 health and safety guidelines will be practiced during this event. Seating in the Ballroom will be socially distanced, and attendees must wear masks throughout the entire program.

Greenewald will also have roses for sale after the program. Angel Gardens grows more than 1,000 varieties of roses and specializes in Old Garden Roses.
