Gardening as Therapy webinar

October 3, 2017 (1:30 PM - 3:00 PM )

The therapeutic benefits of gardening have been documented since ancient times but there has been a recent upswing in the interest for therapeutic gardening and horticulture. Join Extension Horticulture Educator, Candice Hart, as she discusses what exactly therapeutic gardening is and is not and shares how you can be successful in helping yourself, as well as others to enjoy the art of gardening at home or in institutions like schools, assisted living facilities, and others. Tips for success and examples of activities will be shared.
