Scars Community Healing center & Garden
From weekly Coffee & Convo support groups to Sunday Skype to Weekend Wellness of various activities, including our community healing garden where we have created a free, year-round local healing garden experience for survivors so they can come together in community. Together we will learn how to be nourished and fed in mind, soul, and body.
Experience restorative and healing benefits
Join us for hands-on classes created just for the well-being of survivors. Learn healing and nurturing practices you can do through gardening.
Learn to grow fresh food and share in the bounty
This is a very special garden community just for survivors. We take care of all the costs and supplies, while they help plant, grow, harvest and share in a bountiful crop of delicious food. Survivors and their families create rich relationships while benefiting from being outdoors and working with nature. Children are welcome to come too. They can work in the garden or play at the beautiful playground onsite.
We offer group classes taught by OSU Master Gardeners facilitated by survivor mentors.
Design your own personal mini-garden
Survivors will have the option to receive a take-home garden to tend year-round. They can select from several types of plants, vegetables, and flowers to suit individual needs and desires. In addition, we provide pots, soil, fertilzer and more. Everything that is needed for a lush botanical experience.
Personalized planning is available to help each survivor choose the plants which would be the best fit for them and have the best chance of success for each season.
