​Full Day Medical Symposium

The tulip has been associated with Parkinson’s Awareness since 1980 when J.W.S. VanderWereld, a Dutch horticulturalist diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, developed a red & white tulip to honor Dr. James Parkinson. We call on the community to plant one thousand tulip bulbs at the San Miguel Community Garden. It is an opportunity to educate by showing how using gardening as a therapeutic tool to improve motor skills in Parkinson’s disease.
