Summer session begins June 18, 2019.
We received a grant for $675 from Rotary Santa Cruz! We will be buying some self watering planters for the patio as well as a mini greenhouse!
Horticultural therapy sessions are offered at Aegis of Aptos the first and third Thursdays of every month. On August 15th we had a melon tasting on a hot day out on the patio. We sampled Galia, Sharlyn, Chanterais and Piel de Sapo. This week we will be dividing some overgrown perennials.
Today we had a lively session with Assisted Living participants. Fresh from the garden we looked at several species of hydrangeas as well as Dahlia and sunflower. We made root view cups with plastic cups, soil and 5 different varieties of bean seeds. After they have grown, they'll be planted out in the garden.
Memory Care residents can look forward to some transplanting of fall vegetables in September.
We visit Sunshine Villa roughly on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.
