The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Geauga County provides education, support and advocacy to individuals with mental health conditions and their family memberes. In collaboration with Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, NAMI has started the Planting for Change Community Garden.
A quote by Audrey Hepburn perfectly sums up our mission, "To plant a garden is
to believe in tomorrow." Our goal is to bring the community together to end the
stigma surrounding mental illness by offering a nurturing space to make lasting
connections and learn gardening skills.
We are looking for volunteer gardeners - NO EXPERIENCE is necessary!
This garden is open to individuals living with mental illness/addiction, their loved
ones and everyone in the community.
