The pace of life is the pace of plants.

Sue Stuart-Smith’s book The Well Gardened Mind, argues that our increasingly urbanised and technology-dependent lifestyles make it more important than ever to rediscover a closer relationship with the earth. Sue tells brilliant, illuminating stories of people struggling with stress, depression, trauma and addiction, from asylum seekers to veterans, inner-city young people to the retired.

This in-conversation between Sue Stuart-Smith and Christopher Woodward, Director of the Garden Museum, will delve deeper into the science behind the restorative power of gardening and its ability to change people’s lives, drawing on Sue’s extensive experience as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist.
