Our annual Thyme For Kids Plant Sale features a variety of plants, flowers and herbs grown by the youth in our horticulture therapy program. Open to the public and free to attend, most plants cost between $2-$8. Proceeds from the sale support our horticultural therapy program which improves the health of youth in our care by giving them the opportunity to spend time in a greenhouse and garden nurturing living plants. Studies show that just being in nature — such as taking a walk through a garden or park — can improve one's state of mind while lowering blood pressure, heart rate and stress. Through this program, youth in our care get to experience firsthand the calming effects of nature while also gaining valuable work experience. They often feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as they watch their plants flourish and often drawn correlations to their own lives as they process their trauma and heal.
