Interview with Gwenn Fried

This week, Shannon and Joe speak with the Manager of Horticultural Therapy Services at NYU Langone, Gwenn Fried! Gwenn is an experienced and passionate therapist and advocate for horticultural therapy, with over 25 years in the field. In addition to her work for NYU, Gwenn works to develop horticultural therapy programs and garden spaces in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, rehabilitation facilities, and other public spaces. She is a board member of MetroHort Group, an association of horticulture professionals practicing in the New York City and Tri-State area, and has been featured in a New York Times article on horticultural therapy. We were so lucky to have her on the pod, as she gives an expert’s breakdown of horticultural therapy for our hosts and lays out all the benefits of nature, gardens, and greenery as stress relievers!
