Did you know?
Schurig Center is surrounded by a beautiful garden used for Horticultural Therapy.
May is "Gifts From the Garden" month! A garden is the perfect place to find refuge from our day-to-day stresses and to reconnect with nature. But, gardening also has many benefits for those living with the effects of a brain injury.
Horticultural Therapy is an effective tool that improves one's quality of life after a brain injury by offering cognitive, social, psychological, and physical benefits.
Through hands-on garden activities, participants improve memory, cognitive abilities, and task initiation skills while also strengthening muscles and improving coordination, balance, and endurance.
Gardening is a direct connection with our natural environment and life cycle that can bring about surprising results, both in improving motor skills and in reducing stress. By caring for plants, individuals also experience first-hand their impact on improving the ecosystem.
Therapeutic gardening at Schurig Center is a special program designed specifically for brain injury survivors that is not available anywhere else in our area.
Only YOU can help provide this life-changing healing in nature.
We need your help to raise $5,000 by May 31.
Without the support of people like you, Schurig Center would not be able to offer therapeutic services, like gardening. Your gift helps provide supplies to keep our therapeutic program participants busy this year.
Donations of $250 or more in the month of May will be honored with a personalized brick in the center's garden!
