Each year, Austin Child Guidance Center’s team of counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists treats more than 3,000 children, adolescents, and their family members. Clients can opt to engage in therapeutic sessions in the quiet, natural setting of the garden, which therapists have found can help encourage youth to be more expressive. Green thumbs maintain the Children’s Healing Garden in an environmentally conscious manner by planting native and adapted plants that help minimize water usage and fertilizers. Austin Child Guidance Center would like to extend the garden’s therapeutic potential by expanding it to include a new garden bed.
