Goin Native Therapeutic Gardens

Goin Native Therapeutic Garden’s mission is to utilize public and private spaces to provide horticultural education, emotional & physical rehabilitation, and practical life skills to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Nature is the healer. We plant with purpose in nature connecting people with the environment and each other. We gather new friends each week at the Los Rios Park gardens as we tend to the certified butterfly gardens as a whole. Our collaborative work has expanded with (CUSD) the ATP program with additional community partnership. We currently work with OC Bridges adult day program, creating a work type environment where clients sign in and out and have a task schedule. The weekly garden visits empowers each developmental disabled adult, giving them a purpose and meaning for their work while supporting our park goals.We have been adopted by the philanthrophy group, National Charity League, where moms and daughters volunteer during school breaks working side by side in the garden. Our all ages, background and abilities motto serves us well as we connect in the garden with the general population working as a team focusing on the tasks at hand and not our differences. Nature is an equalizer, it gives us life, we take from it and it takes from us. We are emotionally healthier when we connect in nature. Our goal is that the Los Rios Park Garden Angel Program concept will become a model for other cities to adopt to connect community to care for the local park gardens while the gardens care and nurture the people that tend to them. We live in a time of personal isolation with addiction, anxiety and depression on the rise. The garden programs we've created connect people, giving them a plan and purpose for their lives, halting the need to isolate. Our big idea is to create more park opportunities in our city and surrounding cities for people to tend and heal their emotional and physical selves while increasing the pollinators that help the gardens.
