The Power of Plants and Flowers and the People – Plant Connection through Horticultural Therapy
People respond to plants. Plants respond to people. We respond to the cycles of the season. Plants in turn respond to our care without judgement. This is a dynamic session by Laura DePrado, President of Final Touch Plantscaping, LLC, B.S., Registered Horticultural Therapist with the American Horticultural Therapy Association, and Columnist for Gannett, demonstrating and celebrating the People-Plant connection. Experience and learn through interacting with plants, our responses to plants using the 5 senses, and the growing trend of Horticultural Therapy in New Jersey as an expansion of the Agriculture/Horticulture industry. Learn about the history of horticultural therapy across the nation and the evidenced-based benefits in health and well-being.
