At Gwinnett Park, a resident named Paul has taken leadership of the DIY Culinary Herb Garden Program. When several fellow residents were in the hospital a few months ago, Paul led a group of other residents to dry the lavender from the Eldergrow garden. These residents created fragrant, sensory sachets as gifts for their friends’ return to the community.
In the video below, you can see a Sandy Springs resident caring for her Eldergrow Therapeutic Garden. As she waters the plants, she remarks on the colors and beauty of the garden. Caring for the garden is a purpose-building sensory activity for many residents.
