Join the London Middlesex Master Gardeners for this full-day technical update titled “The What, Why and Wonderful of THERAPEUTIC GARDENS”
Bad knees? Arthritic hands? Eyesight not what it used to be? With an aging population comes a diversity of new challenges and needs. As Master Gardeners, it is important for us to be aware of and address these challenges so we can guide more people to continue a healthy interest in gardening. In this workshop, you will experience some of these issues first hand and learn about modifying gardens, strategies, and programs to address them.
