Sustainability Symposium 2011: Healing Spaces

Cleveland Botanical Garden will host its 2011 Sustainability Symposium, Healing Spaces, February 4-5.

The naturally soothing qualities of gardens and planned outdoor spaces can be powerful both physically and emotionally. Throughout the Garden’s sixth annual Sustainability Symposium, home gardeners and professionals will learn from renowned national and local speakers about the valuable therapeutic properties of gardens, plants and other landscaping components, and how to make them come to life.

The Garden will hold a special session with continuing education units for green industry professionals on Friday, February 4. On Saturday, February 5, we will present a day’s worth of useful advice to home gardeners on how to create therapeutic outdoor spaces in their own yards. Anyone is welcome to attend either or both days.
