The Soil to Supper Therapeutic Gardening Program is a unique initiative that offers participants with opportunities to improve their emotional wellness and physical health, learn new skills, develop confidence and enhance social connection through garden-based activities and growing fresh food.
Based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, this program supports and enables participants to follow the basic principals of horticulture to promote overall health and wellbeing. This includes fun garden-based activities with simple techniques, information and guidance to learn skills, grow fresh food and enhance health within the participant’s home garden or a community organisation.
Activities include discovering dirt, planting seedlings and shrubs, homegrown foods, growing new plants, composting, nature art, harvesting and cooking, plus loads more! These are suitable for all abilities from the beginner gardener to seasoned green thumb and are customised to suit the need of individuals.
One-on-one or group sessions are available from 2 to 3 hours, either weekly or fortnightly, and include a range of activities that are scheduled to suit participant’s aims for wellbeing and to provide outcomes for their NDIS plan or for the goals for organisations.
Gardening equipment is provided by Soil to Supper for garden-based activities and individuals or organisations are required to purchase perishable items, including potting mix, seeds and plants as arranged for activities.
The current NDIS Pricing Arrangements line items are followed for the program and charged at the appropriate hourly rate plus provider travel to participant’s home.
For organisations, please contact me to discuss your needs for group programs.
For more information please contact me HERE.
We also follow activities from the Therapeutic Gardening Community, which participants can join and follow along with our online programs, especially if located outside of the Sunshine Coast.
I provide support online through the Community and subscription payments follow along with NDIS Pricing Arrangements for Capacity Building. More information HERE.
I look forward to Soil to Supper gardening sessions with Cath being outside in the garden helps my physical and mental wellbeing.
I enjoy sowing seeds, propagating, planting seedlings, watering, watching them grow, mulching, keeping the compost going. It’s all part of the cycle of life in the garden.
