Goals of Dementia Gardens

  • Community Garden: A garden where people living with dementia and their families, along with student groups and community partners can enjoy purposeful and enjoyable outdoor activity together.
  • Gardening Day Program: A weekly day program that will run from May to September that will provide respite for care partners.
  • Native Plant Nursery: The long-term development of a native plant nursery that will benefit the city of Thunder Bay and support the Dementia Garden.
  • Education & Recreation: A program that will involve people living with dementia, care partners, students and community partners – all working and having fun together!
  • Biodiversity: Native plan gardens benefit local wildlife, including pollinators, and prevent the spread of invasive plants which might harm the environment.
