Caregiver’s Garden Helps Keep Love Growing

Caregiver’s Garden Helps Keep Love Growing

A caregiver’s love never stops growing. Caregivers come in all different forms: mothers, fathers, children, friends and agencies like Carefor. Supported by the City of Ottawa, and in partnership with Ritchie Feed & Seed, Carefor is gearing up to launch the Caregiver’s Garden in Strathcona Park. The Garden will be a place for people to come to reflect on a caregiver in their lives or someone for whom they have provided care. The Garden is a perfect metaphor for caregiving as it requires ongoing attention and love, but despite the work can bring much joy. The planting of the garden will take place in June, featuring a wide array of pollinating plants and flowers that will bloom at various points of the year.

In the meantime, Ritchie Feed & Seed will be selling potted plants for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to support the launch of the Caregivers’ Garden. The Caregivers’ Garden will help fund training of Carefor staff who support local caregivers through their work. The featured plants will be Lavender for Mother’s Day and Delphinium for Father’s Day
