A quote by Audrey Hepburn perfectly sums up our mission,“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Our goal is to bring the community together to end the stigma surrounding mental illness by offering a nurturing space to make lasting connections and learn gardening skills.
This garden is open to individuals living with mental illness/addiction, their loved ones and everyone in the community.
