Boy Scouts to Build Gazebo at Roses for Autism Sensory Garden
October 14, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Witness firsthand the power of volunteerism to turn a dream into reality. Roses for Autism created the sensory garden as a gift to the community, and thanks to generous support from individuals and businesses, will officially unveil the beautiful space in June 2018. Completion of the gazebo will earn Benjamin his Eagle Scout ranking, the highest and most prestigious award in all of Scouting.
The project is the latest outpouring of goodwill and donations from the community after the destruction. The public is invited to support Ben in this important milestone and learn more about the nonprofit program that is changing lives.
Roses for Autism helps individuals with autism and other disabilities grow their careers and cultivate their tomorrows! Based in Guilford, Connecticut, we are a nonprofit garden retailer that grows and sells fragrant fresh cut roses, other flowers, and unique gifts while also providing career training and mentorship to young adults.
Since 2009, Roses for Autism at the historic Pinchbeck Farm, in partnership with its parent company Ability Beyond, has helped over 100 individuals with achieve success. Proceeds from flower sales and its exclusive Ardent Rose perfume fund its innovative programs and community sensory garden. Visit rosesforautism.com
