We have built and planted into our raised bed, self-watering planters! We received a grant for $675 from Rotary Santa Cruz to buy them. We will be putting together our mini shelf/greenhouse this week as well.
This month we transplanted and will be planting bulbs for spring bloom. We have been enjoying working outside under the awning with our new table and chairs. Horticultural therapy sessions are offered at Aegis of Aptos the first and third Thursdays of every month.
Today we will be pressing fresh flowers and leaves with Assisted Living participants. We will use pansies, cosmos, hydrangeas and dusty miller to press and dry, later in the season we will make bookmarks and cards with the dried flowers.
Memory Care residents can look forward to planting bulbs later in September.
We visit Sunshine Villa roughly on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.
