Plants have universal appeal. Plants do not judge. Plants are used in sickness and in health, in celebration and in sorrow. We cook with them. We wear them as clothing. What is it about our need to connect to nature? Join Laura DePrado, horticultural therapist/consultant, to learn about horticultural therapy–also known as therapeutic horticulture or social therapy–its history, application in human health and well-being, and evidence base.

Laura DePrado is a horticultural therapist, HTR, B.S. and HT certificate recipient, author, journalist and photographer, specializing in connecting people and plants for human health and well-being. DePrado is the founder, president and owner of Final Touch Plantscaping, LLC, which provides customized activities and programs using plants to impact social, physical and psychological well-being. She has traveled the world studying the ancient use of plants in health and medicine. She is a three-time national presenter of the American Horticultural Therapy Association (AHTA) and recipient of the AHTA Alice Burlingame Humanitarian Award.

Laura will be joining us in person for this program.
