Garden Wellness Café Summer Series (ONLINE)

2022-05-27T12:31:15-04:00

From the comfort of your home, you’ll have a chance to meet others in a fun and supportive environment and be transported to beautiful outdoor settings. We’ll start each week by awakening our senses through some gentle seated movements to get our bodies warmed up. We’ll introduce the week’s theme through poetry, art, and a short photo slideshow. We’ll also engage in a group chat, demonstrate a weekly hands-on activity that you can try at home, and encourage participants to document their seasonal discoveries in their nature journals.

Join our facilitator, Emma Rooney, as we celebrate the start of summer, take a closer look at garden soil, make our own flower arrangements, and taste local flavors in the garden kitchen.

This program will be held on Zoom. Participants will be mailed program materials and expected to collect some simple supplies on their own (instructions provided). 

Garden WellnessCafe is intended for people living with early to mid-stages of dementia, young onset dementia and mild cognitive impairment. Caregivers are invited to attend alongside a person living with dementia or to join us to get ideas for sharing nature-based exploration with the person they are supporting. 

Dates and Time:

Biweekly on WEDNESDAYS: June 22, July 6, July 20 and August 3 (4 weeks) from 10:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.

Be sure to check out our NEW Summer Gardening Q & A with Emma taking place June 8th from 10:00 – 11:15 A.M. on Zoom. Get answers to your summer gardening questions and fresh ideas for activities that will engage your senses this season.

Gardening Together with Emma – ONLINE

2022-05-27T12:31:13-04:00

Join Emma Rooney, our AST gardener in residence, to get answers to your summer gardening questions and fresh ideas for garden and nature activities that will engage your senses this season.

You don’t have to have access to a garden to get inspired and start growing. This 75-minute session is open to everyone and especially designed with care partners in mind. Refresh in the garden and add a little gardening to your wellbeing routine. We’ll also share tips for supporting those living with memory loss to make the most of their time outside and get hands in the dirt. Bring your plants, bring your questions, and join us to get gardening together!

For creative activity ideas, we invite you to check out the book “Connecting in the Land of Dementia: Creative Activities to Explore Together” by Deborah Shouse. You’ll find it at the Toronto Public Library.
