The Laguna Honda Positive Care program is the only HIV/AIDS skilled nursing program in the San Francisco Bay Area. One of its goals is to emphasize the therapeutic effects of interaction with nature by providing a secure garden where residents can enjoy “activity, fresh air, meaningful conversation and strengthening ties to the affirming communities that make up one’s life.” This program serves 60 adult residents.

Master Gardeners partner with the members of the Laguna Honda Positive Care program community on planning, planting, tending, and harvesting, the garden this unit. It is open during specific hours of the day for residents, as well as to staff, caregivers, families, and visiting friends.
