The Healthy Gardener: Preventing Injuries and Staying Fit
From null Zoom Webinar
Gardening can be great exercise, but it can also be hard on your body and put you at risk of injury. Aging and elderly gardeners may find it especially difficult or dangerous. Our presenter, a retired physical therapist, has advice that gardeners of all ages can benefit from, including strategies for preventing injuries while gardening, how to adapt after injuries occur, and how we can continue gardening safely throughout life's seasons.
Presenter: Patricia Kolling is a retired physical therapist who has been a certified Master Gardener since 2007. She uses her extensive career experience to teach other Master Gardeners and the public how to prevent injuries while gardening, as well as how to continue to garden as they age. She is a graduate of the University of Washington.
