TheraGardens

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

Our Mission:

At TheraGardens, our mission is to promote health and well-being with easy, fun and accessible vegetable and herb gardening.  We assist people in growing their own nutritious, pesticide free, non-GMO vegetables at home or at work; serving families, restaurants, large & small companies and those experiencing physical and emotional challenges.

Urban farming promotes health and general well-being by using a “back to basics “approach for you and your community. With a TheraGardens start up organic garden, and ongoing support, eating healthy becomes accessible, fun and educational, plus it’s good for morale and the environment. Nothing is more satisfying than digging into a plate full of the fruits of your labor. 

The physical, mental and emotional healing that is available from regular interaction with a garden is the foundation for horticultural therapy.  The installation of a TheraGarden provides benefits ranging from fresh air, exercise and vitamin D from the sun, to a venue to teach organic farming. 

Let us assist you in your green initiative and provide your family, employees or customers with organic fruits and vegetables from “seed to table”.  Our service packages range from garden coaching and horticultural therapy to full service vegetable gardening.
