The Seeds4Recovery Program builds from recent activities in County residential treatment facilities, where residents have been participating in community gardening. Seeds4Recovery is a workshop based, outdoor program, based on the principles of horticultural therapy. Studies have found that cultivating plants has many benefits, including physical, nutritional, mental health, and social.
Using outdoor spaces freely available to the public, the Program creates a place where alumni can collaborate and build stronger communities, while learning how to grow food for consumption. It also offers opportunity for alumni to bond with their children, providing nature-based activities that are age-appropriate and can be done at home.
