Therapeutic Garden Horticulture Space

by | The Village

Kiwanis Village is engaging in a community-led design process to install a Therapeutic Garden space at Kiwanis Village. This space will become a place of rest, release, peace, and purposefulness for the Residents, families, staff, and neighbors of our community. Through community consultation sessions, the Residents and staff determined how they hope to help and engage with the garden space. With this feedback, the VIU Horticulture students created a collection of landscape designs, which were then voted on to solidify a final design.

We are now at the stage of pursuing donations to contribute to this space. Donations can be given in the form of cash, time, or bench dedications.

If you’re interested in donating a lump sum, or an amount towards a dedicated bench, please press here: DONATE

If you’re interested in volunteering some of your time in building and maintaining this space or have any questions about this project, please connect with our Horticultural Therapist, Bianca van der Stoel, at [email protected]

We look forward to celebrating the open house for this garden space in the Fall of 2023!
