Amy Brightwood gave a fascinating talk on the therapeutic value of horticulture for a variety of client populations, especially including her work with elementary school-aged children. The event was the second quarterly educational event of the Piedmont Patch Collaborative; read about future events here.

After the talk, participants enjoyed a demonstration of potting herbs and wildflowers that are suitable for decks and patios, and that will attract pollinators throughout the growing season. Everyone was given a handful of free native wildflower plants to use at home.
