"Come experience the benefits of summer outdoors at Planting Fields. Studies have shown that forest therapy can help build a strong immune system, boost your ability to fight infection, reduce stress hormones, lower your blood pressure and heart rate, and improve concentration and focus. Certified guide, Linda Lombardo, will lead a 2-hour walk throughout the Olmsted Brothers-designed landscape of Planting Fields that will promote mindfulness and connectivity with your surroundings. Forest Therapy is a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments . It originated as Shinrin-Yoku–森林翼 – Japanese characters that translate as “forest and woods and taking them all in.”. It’s not about distance or endurance. It’s about slowing down and noticing."
