GARDENING IN SMALL SPACES:
PATIOS and CONTAINERS
Monday March 19, 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Northeast, North Star and Eastside Villages are partnering to coordinate a series of presentations for our combined membership. This month, NEV is pleased to host Patty Cassidy, author of The Age-Proof Garden and The Illustrated Practical Guide to Gardening for Seniors. Patty will speak about patio and container gardening at the Belmont Library. Novice and experienced gardeners are welcome. A question and answer period will follow her presentation.
Patty combines over 35 years of professional experience as a mental health counselor, educator, Master Gardener, and registered horticultural therapist. She sits on the national board of the American Horticultural Therapy Association. Her current work as a horticultural therapist is a natural extension of her training and experience as a counselor and her lifelong love of gardening.
In addition, for the past seven years, Patty Cassidy has presided as president of the Friends of the Portland Memory Garden, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the lives of individuals with memory disorders and their caregivers by maintaining the Portland Memory Garden and providing therapeutic and educational activities.
