Doing Good With The National Garden Bureau

American Meadows has been a proud sponsor of the Therapeutic Garden Grant and a member of the National Garden Bureau since 2016. We believe Meadowscaping makes it better. Gardening is a physically, spiritually, and socially enriching experience and we are deeply committed to making this magic accessible to all.  

“The National Garden Bureau is proud to continue our annual therapeutic garden grant program to sponsor the growth of therapeutic gardening across North America. Gardening is a great tool of healing for so many and we understand the importance of the grant program to allow for these programs to flourish and grow in our communities.”

– NGB Past President Nick Pucci

NGB Therapeutic Gardening Grant

The American Horticultural Therapy Association defines a therapeutic garden as "a plant-dominated environment purposefully designed to facilitate interaction with the healing elements of nature. Interactions can be passive or active depending on the garden design and users’ needs. There are many sub-types of therapeutic gardens including healing gardens, enabling gardens, rehabilitation gardens, and restorative gardens."

The National Garden Bureau launched a philanthropic program in 2014 that supports the building and growth of therapeutic gardens across North America. This program furthers NGB’s mission of promoting gardening to gardeners and non-gardeners alike. American Meadows has been one of three main sponsors for the Therapeutic Garden Grant. We are proud to support the impactful work being done by the grant recipients to improve the lives of everyone in their community.
