Title Gardening for the Mind
Abstract Combining contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and compelling real-life stories, Sue Stuart-Smith will explain the remarkable effects that nature can have on our health and wellbeing and how vital gardening can be, both as an escape for the brain and to help our minds through movement as well as thought.

She studied English Literature at the University of Cambridge before qualifying as a doctor and working in the National Health Service for many years, becoming the lead clinician for psychotherapy in Hertfordshire.
