Here, community members had the opportunity to learn from presentations with topics including “Therapeutic Benefits of Container Gardening,” “Healing Benefits of Hypnosis and Meditation,” and “To Bee… or not to Bee.” Between sessions, attendees bid on 49 different garden containers made by supporters of the Cancer Resource Centre. From the Chicago Cubs to fairy gardens, the boxes represented the diverse interests of the Region.
