Let the healing begin

PASSi Healing Garden

In July 2016, PASSi completed the installation of its “Healing Garden,” a stone, raised patio garden that overcomes barriers to gardening for seniors. The height allows the seniors to garden while standing and the study stone material allows them to sit while gardening as well.

The surrounding stone walkway also makes it senior friendly and accessible for wheelchairs and walkers. The garden got its name because many Asian cultures use herbs and plants for healing purposes. Our hope is to give our seniors the opportunity to connect with their culture by growing herbs & vegetables that they will use, as well as reap the benefits of moderate physical activity and having access to fresh produce.

The complete garden area now includes the raised garden (Healing Garden), a tranquil fish pond (Peace Pond), and ground-level vegetable garden. Now that spring is finally here, plants are starting to come up. Stop by soon and let the healing begin!
