Bronx drug rehab clients tend gardenClients of Phoenix House 185th Street Short Term Residential Program roll up their sleeves to beautify their surroundings – creating a new patio garden within their treatment facility.  Their backyard oasis of  blooms and hearty plants will be enjoyed by staff and clients; a change from the buildings and pavement of their Bronx neighborhood.

Gardening is a great hobby, allowing creativity and pause to reflect upon nature’s beauty  – a therapeutic activity during treatment, recovery, and beyond for all. Benefits of a bountiful garden increase self-esteem, renewal, and a sense of accomplishment to participants and loved ones enjoying the results.
