Our Winter Lectures are back and this year you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home.

Dr Sue Stuart-Smith is a psychiatrist and psychologist and author of The Well Gardened Mind, a Sunday Times bestseller. She earned her degree in English Literature at Cambridge University before qualifying as a doctor and went on to become the lead clinician in psychotherapy in Hertfordshire. She is married to Tom Stuart-Smith, the celebrated garden designer, and, over 30 years together, they have created the wonderful Barn Garden in Hertfordshire.

In this talk, Sue will talk to us about the research and findings behind her book, which analyses the relationship between gardening and mental health. Sue will combine contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and compelling real-life stories to highlight just how vital gardening can be as an escape for the brain. The talk will be followed by a short, live Q&A session.
