Mother Nature: The Ultimate Healer
Saturday, April 13 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Within 5 minutes of walking among the trees, your heart rate goes down. Within 10 minutes, your attention span lengthens. Within an hour, your killer cells — that attack everything from infection to cancer — are elevated. Just looking out a hospital room at nature speeds up how fast you get well. Nature heals us in so many ways. This talk will go into how this happens and how reaping nature’s benefits are being formalized in a variety of communities.
Given by the co-chairs of Art in Bloom, Hennie Corrin is a horticultural therapist, and Hazel Borys is a city planner who helps inject nature into cities. These two will talk about the science behind the healing landscape, and how we can tap into it.
