Keynote address at the Horticulture Society of New York's Healing Nature Forum

The Horticultural Society of New York in partnership with NYU Langone Center’s Horticultural Therapy Department present:

Healing Nature Forum:
Planting the Seeds of Health and Sustainability

Formerly The Horticultural Therapy Forum

The connection to nature is essential to human health and well-being. Interacting with nature promotes physical, psychological, and community benefits. This year’s forum will focus on information that integrates programming, policy-making and fundraising with non-profits, social services, healthcare industry, and community groups. Therapeutic horticulture can improve the body, mind and spirit through passive or active involvement. Join us as we discuss the importance of horticulture as therapy.
