Local organization offers gardening class to people of all abilities

NEVADA, Mo. – ‘On My Own’ in Nevada offers a weekly gardening class tailored for people of all abilities.

The class features lower flower beds to make them more accessible to those in wheelchairs.

While learning about plants, the participants also learned social skills and how to live more independently.

“Gardening is a great way to improve your health and it’s not just by eating healthy foods,” said Kelly Day, Independent Living Specialist. “It is just perfect for your mental health and your physical health to be outside in the green and to put your hands in the dirt. So it’s very therapeutic and I highly recommend it”.

Officials say On My Own offers other classes that teach other household living skills.
