  • New Research: Exposure to green space may boost cognitive health

    September 04, 2022

    Here's a study we at Maude's Garden think is interesting! A nationwide study shows that exposure to green space may support cognitive health. The NIA-funded study findings support the need for further research into the use of green space exposure as a possible way to reduce the risks of cognitive decline and dementia in older adults.

  • A Year in Virtual Garden Discovery Walks

    January 27, 2022

    In 2021, the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center and Seattle Parks and Recreation decided to continue the virtual version of the Garden Discovery Walk program, as a way to connect the memory loss community to nature and horticulture therapy during the pandemic. Peach Jack, horticultural therapist and MBWC intern, took the lead this year. She hosted and created the virtual tours of local gardens and the accompanying nature-inspired project designed for people to follow at home. This program continues to be possible because of generous, ongoing support from Family Resource Home Care.
