AGMC dressing up its garden


Greene Countrie Towne Festival Queen Kendall Pollard, Junior Miss First Attendant Presley Patterson, and Kerigan, Tobby and Niki Pollard spent an afternoon cleaning and weeding at the Therapeutic Enabling Garden at Adena Greenfield Medical Center. The garden was established as a sensory garden to use during treatment with our patients and as an area for patients to visit with friends, family and pets. It is a wonderful tool to use as therapeutic technique to address several skills, including accessible gardening using high and low rised beds; sensory stimulation with various things to taste, touch and see; and to address community mobility skills navigating outdoor barriers to community, home and leisure accessibility. Last year the AGMC Volunteers purchased a glider, chair and ottoman for the garden. This year they are replacing the pergola and some new pavers to make the area more safe for patients. The girls are planning on coming back and planting flowers later. Also, the rehab unit and the volunteers want to thank Greg Garman of Garman’s Feeds for donating the mulch and McClish Plants Plus Greenhouse for the hanging baskets.
