With Ruth Gonzalez

Let’s dive into the myriad ways nature lifts our spirits, explore garden design, and ponder how to maximize the enjoyment of our outdoor spaces.

As humans, we’re discovering just how beneficial nature is to our well-being. In this talk we’ll discuss some of those benefits. Plus, via inspiring visuals we’ll delve into some simple garden assessments that explore approaches – both large and small – to engage the senses and increase enjoyment of our gardens and outdoor spaces.
