Therapeutic Gardening & Mindfulness

Anyone who loves to garden will agree that being outdoors and digging in the dirt makes you feel good, but did you know there is an entire discipline dedicated to this idea? Therapeutic horticulture is the practice through which participants enhance their well-being through active or passive involvement in plant and plant-related activities. Gardens not only build community and grow fresh produce; they also serve as healing spaces that encourage mindfulness and address a wide range of human needs–including emotional, social, physical, and spiritual needs–that can affect our well-being. Join us for a presentation from registered horticultural therapist, JoAnn Yates, as she discusses the benefits of therapeutic gardening and how to facilitate mindful activities in garden spaces. 

Presented by:

  • JoAnn Yates, Registered Horticultural Therapist, Winston-Salem Children’s Center Horticulture Therapy Program

Growing More Than Veggies series

This series focuses on resources and experiences for community and school gardeners in Forsyth and Guilford counties, and is open for anyone to attend! This is a free program, but registration is required.

Alongside fresh produce, community and school gardens grow deep relationships and community engagement, provide space for physical and mental wellness, and support life-long learning and academic success. All programs will be held the 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 6-7 pm. We offered 4 sessions in the spring and 4 more in the fall.
