Finding Your Ground: The Healing Power of Plants with Laura DePrado (May 19, 2023)
Many believe that life began in a garden. Plants hold great value in society both culturally and historically, being connected to our spiritual, physical and emotional well-being in addition to providing economic and environmental benefits. What is so special about our interaction with plants? Join horticultural therapy practitioner Laura DePrado as you gauge your stress levels and “quiet” your mind through this interactive experience. Learn the social, mental and physical benefits of plants while engaging in creative planting activities to take home. Find your ground and allow nature to nurture you while you nurture it. Gardening, horticulture and knowledge of plants is not a prerequisite.
