Roses for Autism

(WTNH)- While fall may signal the official end of the outdoor gardening season, Roses For Autism in Guilford is still working hard on its new sensory garden and creating beautiful floral gifts for the holiday season. Michelle Ouimette, Managing Director of Roses For Autism, discusses ideas for everyone on your list.

Roses for Autism is a non-profit garden retailer whose mission is to help people with Autism become employed in their local communities. Since 2009, Roses for Autism at the historic 38-acre Pinchbeck Farm in Guilford, has been growing and selling a variety of fresh cut flowers including roses, lilies, and Gerbera daisies. Proceeds from flower sales and our very own Ardent Rose perfume fund scholarships and career training for transition age students with Autism and the creation of a public sensory garden. A sensory garden can be therapeutic and educational for a variety of individuals especially those with disabilities that affect their sensory responses as is the case with Autism. It is specifically organized into different garden beds that are dedicated to inspiring the different senses.
