Saturday 6th April, 1-3pm -

‘Green Healing’ – Social and Therapeutic Horticulture.

We have been presented with a fabulous opportunity to facilitate an introduction to the benefits of Social and Therapeutic Horticulture, at the upcoming Collectors’ Plant Fair on Saturday April 6th.

In an increasingly busy, noisy, cluttered and built up world, the availability of green space is extremely valuable for our mental, physical and social health.  

We are delighted to present ‘Green Healing’ a series of talks by highly experienced S&TH practioners who will talk about their work and the very tangible benefits resulting from various programs across a  diverse range of community and clinical settings.

Come along and hear:

  • Claire Boyle from Royal Rehab – ‘Stealth Rehabilitation’
  • Karen Gray (also representing Secret Garden and Nursery), Virginia Field and Kerryn Coombs-Valeontis joint authors of a new book ‘Nature Heals’ that demonstrates the power of gardens and nature to transform us.
  • Elizabeth Docking from the Community Greening Program, an initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, that is transforming the lives of individuals and communities across NSW. 

There will be opportunities to take part in some ‘hands on’ activities including a kokedama demonstration, creating a mini-arrangement and an EARTHART Autumn Mandala. You will also be able to try out some adaptive tools that make gardening easier.
