Milwaukee Center for Independence: Assisting individuals with special needs

Nexday Garden



The garden at the MCFI Nexday Campus will be in full bloom this year! Add to its beauty with a personalized tile! Proceeds benefit the MCFI Nexday Neurorehabilitation program.

Help our garden grow

Bay View Garden planThe garden at MCFI Nexday Campus in Bay View is used for horticultural therapy, a client-centered, goal-driven, plant-based program that engages the senses, nurtures well-being and builds independence.

In horticultural therapy, care recipients become caregivers, who feed the land, care for the plants and harvest the rewards. Clients gain confidence, build self-esteem and are able to reduce stress and anxiety.

The expanded garden will  have a solid-surface walking path so it will be accessible to those with mobility issues. It will feature garden benches and a beautiful tile recognition wall.

You can be a part of this exciting project by purchasing a garden bench, tiles, trees and other signature garden elements.

Wells St., Milwaukee, WI 53233.
