MANCHESTER - "I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more." John Burroughs, American naturalist and writer, (1837-1921)

What should be included in a healing garden to make it a truly restorative environment? Cindy K. Lewis, owner of The Cultivated Gardener, will clarify this in a talk at Mark Skinner Library: Manchester's Public Library on Saturday, May 11 at 3 p.m.

"I created The Healing Garden presentation with the intention to share the soul's connection to the garden with fellow gardeners. Metaphysically and spiritually, I will discuss the connection between the gardener's intuitive authentic nature and the plants they are attracted to, why we are drawn to those plants, and the healing qualities within them," stated Lewis. "Through sight and smell, The Healing Garden is a thought-provoking, fun, and refreshing personal perspective on gardening."

Cindy K. Lewis was inspired by her father who was an arborist and landscaper. Lewis became a professional gardener in the late 1970s and has worked in both private and public gardens in southern Vermont.

The event is free and open to the public. Mark Skinner Library: Manchester's Public Library is located at 48 West Road in Manchester Village. For more information, contact the library at 802-362-2607 or email events @markskinnerlibrary.org.
