Join Emma Rooney, our AST garden expert, to get answers to your spring gardening questions and fresh ideas for garden and nature activities that will engage your senses this spring season.
You don’t have to have access to a garden to get inspired and start growing. This 90-minute fun and interactive session is open to everyone in our community, and especially designed with care partners in mind. Refresh in the garden and add a little gardening to your personal wellbeing routine. We’ll also share tips for supporting those living with memory loss to make the most of their time outside and get their hands in the dirt. Join us at the start of spring to celebrate how caring for plants can bring us together and evoke fond memories. Bring your plants, bring your questions, and let’s get gardening together!
