Midweek with Greg & Ann

"Horticulture & Mental Health"
Greg Paige, Director of Horticulture

  • Wednesday, September 13, 2023 – 3:00 pm3:30 pm

Those of us who spend time around plants tend to take for granted the myriad ways in which gardening makes us feel good. But as society becomes more urbanized, the necessity of intentionally incorporating horticulture into our everyday lives for the sake of our mental and emotional well-being becomes increasingly apparent. Join us for this special Midweek program where we're joined by Ann Church, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and her husband Greg (our Director of Horticulture) as we talk about mental health and the critical role that Horticulture can play in helping us all feel a little better.
