GROW AS A GARDENER - GROW AS A PERSON
GROW is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. Our Mission is to "introduce the therapeutic benefits of gardening, plant activities, and nature to improve personal well-being."
We work on many exciting projects to introduce gardening to improve the lives of the residents of Tewksbury Hospital, and are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.
Grow begins by introducing the therapeutic benefits to the residents of Tewksbury Hospital.
Our residents learn to connect to nature and growth through their own healing process
Collectively our residents seed and care for all forms of growth within our three greenhouses on campus.
When our plants are ready to leave our greenhouses they are donated to the grounds of Tewksbury Hospital, resident programs and the community of Tewksbury.
By adapting to recognized safety guidelines,we can now offer our resident volunteers a safe return to outdoor,socially-distanced,gardening activities. Interested in joining us? There's enough dirt for everyone! Click below to learn Volunteering next steps.
