Introduction to Horticultural Therapy Workshop

This Tues., July 30, 5:30 p.m.  Horticultural therapist, Debra Edwards, teaches how to use gardening to inspire physical, mental, and emotional well-​​being. Horticultural Therapy has been defined as “the use of plants and gardens for human healing and rehabilitation.” It is an ancient practice, but a rather new profession and is offered as a field of study at many universities and institutions. An increasingly large body of research attests to the unique values of horticulture as a therapy for people with physical, mental, emotional, and social disabilities.

This workshop is Free and open to all. It will be held in the Lowe’s Discovery Lab at the Children’s Village. Click here for more information
