Close to people with autism, cultivating new ideas for a better life, as they deserve!
who are we
Gi Therapenís is a non-profit and charitable association for people with developmental disorders. It was founded in 2017 by parents and friends of autistic individuals, for the sake of the creation of a therapeutic farm, where adult people with autism can be trained, work under customized circumstances and reside.
The Disorder of the Autistic Spectrum is a developmental disorder that affects multiple aspects of one’s life. The difficulties or the inabilities in communication, social interaction, understanding and expression of emotions and the tenacity in various activities, interests and behaviors, render the autistic’s life different and struggling.
Through the gardening program and engagement with the land, our members have the opportunity to be trained in skills necessary for their daily lives. Sensory desensitization & integration, motor design, communication and social interaction, emotional reciprocity, are achieved through the immediacy of nature and the joy of growing fresh, organic vegetables that they offer to their families and society!
