Grow Getters: A Garden-based Therapy Group for High-schoolers – July School Holidays

Event date: 13 July 2022 , Comments

During the July School Holidays, come and join us for a morning of exciting garden-based activities as we set up our new therapy garden in Penrith (ages 12 – 17).

What your child will gain:
• Have fun getting hands-on in the garden while learning how to grow and take care of a selection of vegetables and other plants and help us set up our very own worm farm
• Develop social skills and form new friendships as you participate in activities alongside others and engage in group tasks
• Build your ability to follow written and verbal instructions
• Practice problem-solving skills to overcome challenges that arise in the garden
• Experience the sensory and therapeutic benefits of working with nature
• Receive support from our therapists to adapt tasks in order to maximise your participation in gardening activities

Benefits of a group setting:
• Makes a great complement to individual therapy
• Offers opportunities for practice of a range of skills within functional and purposeful activities
• Takes place in a safe learning environment, with support and guidance from peers and our Penrith therapy team
