Creativity Blooms in the Glass Garden
Residents at Eagle Meadow Assisted Living and Retirement Community have created something rather unusual – a garden made of repurposed glassware. The program was started by art therapist Vicki Pullerm, who came up with the idea while stuck inside during an ice storm. She encouraged residents to bring in glassware, and piece by piece planted the glassware to begin the glass garden. The program has since taken off. “It pushed their creativity; it’s outside the ordinary. It’s a way of looking at things differently. They are tapping into their creativity, way outside the box,” said Puller.
