Horticultural Therapy

Once used to help treat hospitalized war veterans in the 1950's, horticultural therapy has grown in popularity and is now a common practice in many communities. Solaria works with marginalized groups, specifically the elderly and individuals with various abilities in Nelson and surrounding area. Through a variety of plant-based activities, sessions are aimed towards awakening the mind and body through techniques that will lower stress, improve concentration and enhance one's overall well being.  

Sara is a certified Master Organic Gardener (yes, that's actually a thing!) and is passionate about teaching others how the use of organic, everyday materials can help gardens and house plants thrive naturally.
