HWP - Health & Well Being Program Series
Boost Your Health series 2012 - Healthy Living with Plants
|Who can deny the delight of walking through a stand of trees, or marveling at a lilac in bloom? Yet most of us work in a man-made environment, with nary a genuine plant in sight. Research shows that indoor plants can dramatically affect the quality of our work and home lives, both physically and mentally, resulting in significant health benefits.
Dr. Danielle Donnelly, Associate Professor, Department of Plant Science, will discuss the various health benefits of living with plants, and guide us through the choice of plants suitable for an office environment. Have a black thumb? No problem – you just need a low-maintenance plant! If you are already a plant enthusiast, this is also a chance to sign up for a McGill-based plant exchange, hosted by Dr. Heidi Hoernig, Senior Research Program Officer, Office of Research Opportunities, Faculty of Arts.
