It’s going to be an exciting weekend at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Mary Palmer Dargan will be the opening speaker for Live Long and Landscape: Gardening for Health and Happiness on Saturday, October 19th. The day’s seminar will discuss how gardening and healthy living are a match made in heaven.
For the early birds, the day will begin with a refreshing session of Yoga in the Garden, led by Candyce Columbus, who leads Yoga in the Garden classes at the Arboretum on Tuesday mornings, Thursday evenings and quarterly sessions on Saturdays. After that, we’ll dive into discussions on how your health can benefit from gardening.
Mary Palmer will share how to “Turbocharge Your Landscape for Health and Longevity” by discussing eight key points to a healthy and inspired landscape based from her new book, “Lifelong Landscape Design.” In the discussion, she’ll cover topics such as horticultural therapies, as well as sustainable landscape design and how integrating sustainable practices into your daily life is just as essential as many of our other daily tasks that promote overall health and well-being.
The event will also feature lectures on ideal fruits and vegetables to grow in California gardens, landscape feng shui, how to use gardening as a way to workout and herb gardening. Guided garden walks will also take place, as well as book signings and lunch.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the beautiful Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden and discussing how gardening and healthy living go hand-in-hand this weekend. For more information on the event or to register to attend, visit the event website or call 415-441-4300.
