Linn County Sustainability Hosting Interactive Horticulture Therapy Classes
Linn County Sustainability is hosting interactive horticulture therapy classes this month called Garden Bridge Outreach. The classes were developed by Linn County Food Systems Council member Scott Koepke to show the therapeutic benefits of gardening.
Program participants will learn about life skills, such as hope, resilience, patience, balance, and peace while observing or participating in garden maintenance (watering, weeding, and harvesting). Samples of vegetables will be provided.
The final class will be held August 28 from 10 a.m.-noon in the gymnasium at the Linn County Fillmore Building, 520 11th St. NW in Cedar Rapids. The content of each class will be same. Attendance will be capped a 20 people per class, so registration is encouraged.
