Days in the Garden:
Cultivate Peace, Harvest Joy

Immerse yourself in the soothing rhythm of nature. Take a break, get your hands dirty, and feel your stress melt away.

  1. What is the service?
    Our “Days in the Garden” are unique experiences that allow caregivers to connect with nature, engage in gardening activities, and find solace in the open air. It’s a chance to nurture plants. Beyond gardening, these days also offer opportunities to learn about different plants and their unique properties, learn new skills, and, perhaps, find parallels between the growth in the garden and your journey as a caregiver.
  2. Who will I be working with?
    Experienced Hope Grows staff and the Iris Respite House Gardens team lead these gardening sessions. We welcome all family caregivers from the greater Pittsburgh area!
  3. Where and when?
    Come to the Iris Respite House in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. Spend a day in our beautiful gardens, engaging in a variety of activities, from planting and tending to harvesting, and gain insights into mental well-being and health. Days in the Garden are scheduled seasonally. All caregivers are welcome to join us for these special days to connect with nature
