The Healing Gardener: Brian Ingram, PA-C, Cultivates Care for People and Plants

Button Mums and colorful planters can be found throughout the Ingram Garden features in the LACASA Garden Walk 2018.

Michigan Urgent Care and Occupational Health – Brighton and Physician Assistant Brian Ingram are pleased to sponsor and support LACASA Garden Walk 2018 in Livingston County. The clinic is honored to be an event sponsor, and Brian Ingram’s private garden is one of only 10 gardens to be showcased in this year’s event. The Garden Walk is an annual fundraiser for LACASA with all proceeds helping victims of child abuse and interpersonal violence in the Livingston County community.

For more than a decade, Brian Ingram, PA-C, has been cultivating care both at the Brighton clinic and his own backyard. His European-inspired garden has an abundance of annuals and perennials, as well as oversized pots and window boxes, creating a unique, quaint, and quiet retreat. The small, colorful garden compliments the continental theme. A water fountain and rain garden ass tranquility to the setting, which can be enjoyed from several sitting areas.

Lilies, roses, and water features are just a few of the highlights of Michigan Urgent Care’s Brain Ingram’s, PA-C, private garden.

“I enjoy the beauty the flowers not only bring to my yard but to my community as well,” says Ingram. “It’s wonderful to come home to a quiet and colorful retreat.” In fact, the National Institutes of Health reports that gardening has many positive health influences, including stress relief, physical activity, and immunity and brain health support.

The LACASA Garden Walk takes place Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily. Tickets to stroll through lush gardens and private landscapes, including Brian’s, are available in advance through the LACASA website at or at garden entrances on Saturday and Sunday.
