Garden Therapy Holiday Workshop

On December 7th the members of the Garden Therapy conducted a Holiday Wreath workshop for the residents of the Faxon Woods , a lovely facility for memory impaired residents.  Ann Forseman, Diane Hill and Anneli Johnson did the preliminary preparations by assembling the tiny hemlock cones thanks to Elaine McGrail, bells and ribbons. The residents enjoyed selecting their favorite decorations and then attaching them to their wreaths, including a lovely candle in the center. 
 
The wreaths were displayed on the residents room doors or placed on their table .  The Garden Therapy workshop was as much therapy and enjoyment for the garden Club Members as it was for the residents and staff at Faxon Woods.
