Horticultural Therapy Program for Individuals Living with Alzheimer's

Our Plants and People Horticultural Therapy Program for Individuals Living with Alzheimer's encourages those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers to interact with the Garden in an enjoyable and relaxing way. If you or your loved one is living with Alzheimer's, please join us for a wonderful experience at Fairchild. We connect you or your loved one with the beauty of the Garden, including the scent of allspice leaves, blooming flowering trees, birds, butterflies and much more while enjoying a guided tour of Fairchild and a delicious lunch.  The program concludes with a special butterfly release in Wings of the Tropics.
