As the newest initiative of Lakemary Center, Lakemary Ranch promises to expand therapeutic services to include a variety of garden and animal therapies, while augmenting educational, vocational, and social opportunities for the children and adults we serve.
The ranch has become an extension of Lakemary School - an ongoing project combining classroom lessons with socially interactive opportunities, while offering proven therapeutic value. Currently featuring a chicken coop and rabbit hutches, Lakemary Therapeutic Ranch will soon include the following: a goat paddock, a year-round greenhouse, a high tunnel, a sensory and play garden, a nature and bird-watching space, and a composting area.
The focal point of the ranch will be a large barn, complete with dedicated therapy space, bathroom facilities, and a number of animal stalls. The barn will host daily group activities such as classroom instruction, special presentations, individual/group/family therapy, 4-H meetings, and will be available to the children and adults that Lakemary serves.
