THE WELL-GARDENED MIND
Guest speakers: Sue Stuart-Smith, psychiatrist and psychotherapist and Tom Stuart-Smith, landscape architect
Chair: Steele Marcoux, editor, Veranda
In the fast pace of modern living, with its smart technology and instant feedback, have we become disconnected from nature? Informed by neuroscience and psychoanalysis, this insightful session investigates the magic that many gardeners have known for years – the remarkable therapeutic benefits that tending plants can bring. Discover how the joy of gardening can radically transform health, well-being and confidence, and why access to green space at home and for our communities in the current climate has never been more important.
