Help Cascadia’s Gardens Grow By Donating To Our Garden Drive

Cascadia’s Garden Donation Drive

There is no denying the warm sun these past couple of days and that surely means that Spring is really here. With the warmer weather, you’ll often find many more people enjoying the sun. For 32 Cascadia sites, that also means clients are able to get some sunshine while gardening.

Since we are now in the season of Spring and have over 30 sites with gardens, we would love it if you could spread the word and help our gardens grow by donating to Cascadia’s Garden Drive.

Gardening therapy, also known as Horticultural Therapy is known to have great health benefits such as:

·         Increase overall levels of physical activity and fitness, burn more calories and hence contribute to healthy weight management and reducing the risk of obesity.

·         Increase healthy fruit and vegetable consumption, for adults that grow food, and among schoolchildren participating in food-growing activities at school – as well as improving young people’s attitudes to healthy eating.

·         Reduce physical pain, and help with rehabilitation or recovery from surgery or other medical interventions.

·         Help people cope with physically challenging circumstances, such as intensive cancer treatment or learning how to live with chronic conditions such as asthma or severe allergies.
