Some time ago I submitted here on Golden Carers cotton growing in memory support areas of aged care, as a tactile experience and ongoing long term gardening activity.
I wonder how your project has developed for you, that took on this project within your facility?
We here at Palm Lake Care have pruned our cotton stems to include the cotton balls on them, you may have noticed florists at present are selling dried cotton stems for $35-00 a stem as part of floral arrangements or to stand in a vase on display.
I have sourced, outlet nearby that are willing to purchase our dried stems and this money will be used to fund future cultural days resources, needed
Good Luck, with your Entrepreneurial skills!

I like to create activities that have a good length of time to create repetitive daily activities, habits for memory support residents who like the familiar everyday tasks
It also encourages the use of thier motor skills watering plants, raking leaves, sweeping. Moving now into autumn the weather is lovely and encourages outdoor activities
