Alexis Bardy, an 11th grader at G-Star School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, started the program as a way to help her peers cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. Student Body Health said its mission is to boost mental morale and positive health practices for children. Friday’s event is part of Mental Health Awareness Month.
Students, faculty and youth volunteers will come together to plant flowers and paint flower pots during an outdoor garden event. The program is part of a joint venture Student Body Health along with the Federation of Families of Florida, Inc. and Healthier Glades.
Organizers said they hope to bring kids together for a therapeutic arts and crafts activity that they can take home and care for the plants as they learn to care for themselves. SPECIAL COVERAGE: Rebound South Florida | Managing the Pressure
