Can Have A Very Large Impact!
Pot-A-Plant is an extracurricular activity program for the Special Olympics Summer Games. It is normally a booth in the Olympic Village, Sponsor Village or Olympic Expo and is staffed by volunteers.
Its intent is to provide interaction between the athletes and nature by the
simple act of transplanting a small plant into a larger pot.
The finished product is then given to the athlete to take home and nurture.
To create a horticultural therapy moment that enhances the Special Olympics experience for participating athletes via caring volunteers, touching soil and repotting a plant to take home and nurture.
