5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Garden Therapy May 14, 2001
By Mary W.
GROWING WITH GARDENING is an excellent book to use when working with a group for garden/horticulture therapy. I am an Activity Director in a nursing home and have found this book full of ideas and guidance with what types of plants to plant, how to use them in programs including crafts, when to plant, how to prune and propagate, as well as other projects related to gardening. The book has step by step instructions to build a wheelchair accessible planter and to make a simple flower press. There are lists of supplies related to budget and ways to adapt the program to various ages and abilities. I have found this book has provided me with a wealth of new ideas to expand my residents gardening experiences.
