About the project

In the summer of 2021, we started to work on the project of a planter with a mobile support, starting with a prototype developed on a volunteer basis by Angela Nauleau-Javaudin, the goal being an indoor planter able to service long term care and heath facilities. The prototype was shared with CHSLD Lionel Edmond and CHSLD du Pontiac to provide feedback on how this new participatory way to offer the benefits of nature was effective.

In 2022, thanks to the unrelenting efforts of the Foundation’s founder, Ms. Jeannine Lafrenière, we innovated by teaming up with a partner, DKDI Inc. to respond to CHSLD health professionals asking for a mobile adjustable planter. Following testing of a new prototype at the CHSLD Lionel Edmond, comments and suggestions were used to improve the creation of a unique mobile and adjustable garden planter, which we now call the JASMA Healthcare Planter.

In 2023, the Foundation teamed up with the Montreal Botanical Garden, to put to trial the concept of the healthcare planter at the CHSLD Benjamin-Victor-Rousselot in Montréal. Again, comments and suggestions were used by DKDI to improve the healthcare planter’s ability to effectively service long term care and heath facilities.

2024, and we are now, with your support via donations, ready to donate mobile and adjustable JASMA Healthcare Planters, expressly developed to meet the needs of people with reduced mobility in long term care and heath facilities.

"The cold earth feels good to the hands," said one lady. "Oh I love the purple plant!" said another....
