The extra green space is used by children who have been neglected or abused.
St. Louis: Project has partnered with Alberisi Construction to build a nonprofit therapeutic garden in South St. Louis to care for and treat children with disabilities.
Karen Nolte, chief executive of the Family Transmitter, says that one experience has had an impact on a child’s life.
“Early intervention is very important,” said the CEO.
If the pain is not handled properly, children may face social, physical and mental barriers online.
“When children are traumatized, the brain changes,” says Nolte. We are very good at medically and evaluating children on what to do, and that will change everything in the world.
Volunteers are planting mature walkways, sand and rubbish bins, flowers and swings. Alberri Construction joins efforts to send volunteers ready to wrap up and help.
“It is our duty to return to the community,” said Alberisi Construction Earl Ming. “The community we work for allows us to live our lives. We want to return and make this community a better place not only for our lives but also for the lives that follow.
Although Ming is out in the afternoon, he enjoys spending time with Alberry colleagues who share his desire to help.
Many injured, neglected, or traumatized children have no parks. Nolte and the staff hope that their small green escape will lead to the future success of vulnerable children.
Nolte added, “Similarly, as we seek to walk with children in the path of hope and healing, they have the same opportunity as they sow seeds in the ground and see what they can do.
Garcia’s properties, the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Zimmerman Sensation Garden, the beautiful city parks and landscapes, and the Greenspace Nursery Center all contributed to this project.
