At the Brain Injury Association of Niagara, participant well-being is promoted through Horticultural Therapy , a formal practice that uses plants and horticultural activities.
Seasonal craft activities with horticultural therapist Karin Vermeer are held during the year.
The members enjoy working with Karin and come away with wonderful masterpieces to take home. The theme promoted is connecting with nature.
Karin helps each member to capitalize on the benefits of using plants to help individuals grow emotionally and spiritually, reinforcing the concept: 'To be in the moment.'
