The Life Enrichment Center is the national model for adult day care centers across the country. The Center is a full-service adult day care and health facility, caring for adults with physical and mental disabilities. Dirtworks developed an outdoor setting that extends and complements the center’s varied programs, including therapeutic and social activities.
The sky-lit back porch pavilion at the entrance to the garden provides views of the entire garden within a safe and accommodating environment. The farm features a formal promenade of fragrant trees and raised planters of various heights, leading to a lawn that accommodates wheelchairs. Vine covered trellises anchor the space on both ends, serving as an orientation landmark while providing a comfortable destination for structured activities or casual socializing. Beyond is the meadow with a large open lawn, native grasses, and woodland plantings. The lawn provides space for recreation for visitors with children, while spacious seating areas along a meandering path offer privacy and views of the surrounding woodlands.
