Be Well Be Safe Week at U of G celebrates National Mental Health Week and North American Occupational Safety and Health Week. See the full calendar of events brought to you by Wellness@Work.
Research has shown that spending time in nature is beneficial for both our bodies and our minds, and has the capacity to reduce stress, lower anxiety and encourage mental and emotional well being. Join Horticultural Therapy Practitioner Guinevere Kern in bringing the outdoors inside for a one hour, hands-on, engaging program that harnesses horticulture to support health and wellness and uplift your day, irrespective of the size of your “green thumb”. Participants will have all live plants, soil and related items provided by Wellness@Work, but should have access to a clean, flat surface to work on. This sessions will center around transplanting three different types of plants in three different stages of development to accommodate both indoor and outdoor plant growth opportunities as we enter Spring!
Wellness@Work will purchase supplies to reduce barriers to participation. Registrants will be emailed ahead of the session date with pickup time options and instructions for preparing for the session. Pickup will be on U of G main campus, in the University Centre on Wednesday, May 5 and/or Thursday, May 6. Time is yet to be determined.
