Lecture Recap: an Introduction to Horticultural Therapy with Jim Embry

Lecture Recap: an Introduction to Horticultural Therapy with Jim Embry

To hear Jim Embry talk about horticultural therapy is to hear about how humanity is inextricably connected to the environment.  In our times, nature is often thought of as separate from the human world, but in Embry’s words, “we need the environment, it doesn’t need us” and horticultural therapy is all about reconnecting people to the elements that we cannot live without: air, water and soil.

Designing Your Own Dramatic Annual Container Garden

Designing Your Own Dramatic Annual Container Garden

There’s a wise old saying in Kentucky that goes, “Don’t plant your annuals/tomatoes/peppers until after Derby” which, in our experience, is true.  By the time the first Saturday in May rolls around the soil is warm and the risk of a frost is very low, perfect conditions for tender annuals to thrive.  So when I hear that Kentucky Derby bugle call the horses to post I’m ready with my trowel and apron, ready to design!

Lecture Recap: Discovery Garden - Planting for and with Children with John Michler

Lecture Recap: Discovery Garden - Planting for and with Children with John Michler

What is the secret to gardening for and with children?  Honor the child’s nature and remember the bumblebee!  Children and bumblebees have a lot in common in the garden.  They both are constantly in motion, they are explorers at heart, they are investigators, and they thrive in natural environments.  For adults, this means letting go of your preconceived notions of what a garden is and maybe embrace a little chaos.
