The young adult community at Dawn at The Meadows is enjoying creating and tending to their “Recovery Garden.” With the help of the Dawn staff, Cheetah in Maintenance and the art therapists, our patient community is having a great time watching their veggies grow. Although there is a healthy competition brewing between the men and the women, everyone is actively engaged in ‘practicing the principles’ in all their gardening affairs! Involving the patients in a project where they can have interest and enjoyment in a living, breathing project is integrated into the Dawn experiential and community focused process. Stay tuned for periodic updates on the Recovery Garden and more photos all along the way!
