Horticultural Therapy Awareness Day--March 20

The Missouri Botanical Garden will be sponsoring Horticultural Therapy Awareness Day to introduce visitors to the numerous physical and mental benefits that plants and gardening provide. From 10am to 3pm on Saturday, March 20, visitors can explore a demonstration healing garden, stop by stations to experience different plants and how they can impact various senses, pot a sensory plant to take home, make an arrangement of cut flowers, and watch demonstrations of ergonomic gardening tools.

All activities will be held inside the upper level of the Ridgway Visitor Center and are included with visitor admission, which is free for St Louis City and County residents until noon on Saturday (so go early!).

For more information, visit the Missouri Botanical Garden website or call 314-577-9400.
