Florian Greenhouse Donates to Group for Children with Autism
Florian Greenhouse LLC is proud to donate this Geneva © Horticultural Greenhouse to SOS Healthcare Inc.
On April 2, 2014, community members came together at the greenhouse site location to celebrate the children that are a part of SOS Healthcare, Inc. and those around the world affected by Autism. We are truly grateful to all of the help that went into our wonderful celebration on World Autism Day! It takes a team to make any event happen and we are so thankful to all of those that are a part of SOS Healthcare Inc.
"Thank you to our incredible volunteers who are helping build the new green house at SOS! This will make a difference every day in the lives of people with autism with their incredible donation of the greenhouse, We are so grateful!" exclaimed an SOS spokesperson. This greenhouse will expand their current Green Piece Garden Project and allow children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders an opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities that will teach them agricultural and vocational skills while improving their social skills as they work together to build the gardens and tend to the produce. Horticultural training is individualized to the skills of the person and include - planting seeds, watering, crop transplantation, arranging flowers and etc.
SOS Healthcare, Inc. is a non-profit organization that services children with Autism in Horry, Georgetown and Charleston counties. These services range from ABA therapy, after-school programs, the Making Changes consignment store and more. The goal is for the Florian Greenhouse to allow the Green Piece Garden Project to become a year-round program and for those participating to learn vocational skills that they could use elsewhere in the workforce and beyond. The sense of pride that comes along with creating something with your own hands is priceless. "What a wonderful gift we have received!" She added, "our new garden program will follow shortly. Stay posted for details and photos."
