Nature's Healing Powers with Nancy A. Minich, HTR, RLA
A fascinating workshop to learn about the connection of humankind to nature.  There has always been a strong connection between people and plants, between people and gardening, and people and their natural surroundings.  Biophilia is the innate connection between humans and other living organisms.  This interaction with nature is critically important as humans evolved with plants and animals and therefore have a strong affinity.

Nancy Minich is a registered horticultural therapist and landscape architect.  She has been able to bridge the two professions and elevate the importance of the natural environment to the mental, physical and social health of people of all ages and abilities.  After the presentation, Melissa Miles
an environmental biologist, permaculture designer and teacher will lead a therapeutic holistic hands-on project.
