Health Improvement Program

This class is co-sponsored with the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences.

When we care for our gardens, we’re also caring for ourselves, breathing fresh air, growing healthy food, and spending time in nature. The rhythms of the garden can facilitate mindfulness and contemplation, and offer opportunities to engage with nature in positive and rejuvenating ways. Join this 4-session class at the O’Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm classroom to explore the connections between gardening and wellness. You will learn the practices that enhance mind, body, and garden health. Each session will consist of a classroom learning component followed by a practical learning component in the garden. Course topics include garden ergonomics and stretches, mindfulness practices, prepping and planting garden beds, crop planning, nutrition for humans and gardens, managing pests and diseases organically, recognizing and promoting ecological balance.

Instructor: Anna Lee is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER). She is a Master Composter for San Mateo County, and holds an Advanced Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz, and an MS in Agroecology from UW-Madison. Anna loves gardening, baking, and running far.
