Nichols Center Community

Gardens

The Blessing Garden, Remembrance Garden, Memorial Garden, and Community Vegetable Garden all serve as therapeutic spaces for our wellness and recovery community and families at the Nichols Center. Our goal is to educate our families on the healing benefits of gardening and the organic process while providing a focus for healing.

Brighten Academy Charter Middle School students are working on a special project to reduce food waste and learn about composting.
