2021 National Horticultural Therapy Week: Socialization & Empowerment

March 18th, 2021

In addition to experiencing the joy of having the seeds one has planted and nurtured sprout to life, two other benefits of horticultural therapy include socialization and empowerment. Working at Red Wiggler Community Farm, Growers have an opportunity to build a strong community by connecting to others, to be a part of a team, and to work collaboratively. Growers are also empowered to work independently and take ownership of their tasks where they are proud of their work and contributions. Check out this video from July 2016 of Nuno, one of our growers who has been a part of the Red Wiggler family and community since 2008.
