Take deep breaths, slow down and leave your “to do” list behind.  Experience the therapeutic benefits of horticulture while you think ahead with hope to the garden season. Would you like to learn about Square Foot Gardening?  Come join us to explore this amazing approach to gardening which I highly recommend! This unique way to garden will help you grow more in less space, costs less than traditional row planting and makes gardening more accessible in many ways.

Our class will include an overview of the therapeutic benefits and power of horticulture and gardening to understand why and how it can be used personally, and for people of all ages and abilities.  We will discuss the difference between therapeutic horticulture and horticultural therapy.  You will learn about benefits including increased relaxation, decreased anxiety, stress relief, sensory stimulation, hope, improved cognitive abilities, engagement in life, connectedness, and physical exercise.  It will be clear how plants and the natural world give you support and a sense of well-being when life gets overwhelmingly busy or stressful.   We will spend approximately 40 minutes delving into this.
