The Transformative Properties of Horticulture

Join experts in the field of landscape design, horticulture, and forest therapy as they speak on the significance of access to green spaces in our city.  Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of the roles public green spaces play in our mental health and physical well-being, what initiatives are being taken to build restorative landscapes in our communities, and what the future holds for horticulture therapy programs in the face of the climate crisis.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative activity led by the Black Urban Growers (BUGS) and Therapeutic Outdoors.  The symposium will conclude with an optional, Guided Forest Bathing session in Madison Square Park, led by keynote speaker, Amos Clifford, Founder of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.
