Horticulture Therapy

Horticulture Therapy is a monthly offering we provide to Suffolk’s senior citizens at Nansemond Pointe Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center and at Autumn Care of Suffolk.

An hour long program is provided for residents that are interested in participating in various gardening and nature activities and getting their hands dirty!

If weather is good, we go outside into the courtyard. Otherwise, we offer tabletop activities relating to the season…such as decorating pumpkins in October.
