What potentials do the city’s natural refuges hold for health and healing in response to illness, trauma, nutritional deficiency, and everyday stress?
Following a tour of the Garden of Healing, established by the Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden in response to the September 11 attacks, join us in the Winter Garden for a discussion of how flora, design, and community can support one another, taking cues from the memorial garden and other instances of healing gardens in New York City, including designs for a meditation garden at the Julia and Ned Arnold Center for Radiation Oncology at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, The Healing Garden at Far Rock Farm, and the next phase of the PopUP Forest in Times Square.
Leading the tour will be Wambui Ippolito, horticulturalist, New York Botanical Garden School of Professional Horticulture.
This event is part of U Feel OK?: Health & NYC, Van Alen’s fall program festival from November 11-13.
