The Hózh’q Foundation, in partnership with the People Plant Council (PPC) and the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), is delighted to announce the upcoming
11TH International People-Plant Symposium (IPPS)
The symposium will take place during the Floriade World Horticultural Exposition in Venlo, the Netherlands, on September 6th, 7th and 8th 2012. The theme of the IPPS 2012 is “Diversity: Toward a New Vision of Nature” and the focus will be on the benefits of nature on health and well-being. As there is a growing and dynamic use of nature and gardening as therapeutic tools, we intend to bring together individuals and groups from a vast array of sectors, all with a common interest in nature, health, horticulture, horticultural therapy and therapeutic horticulture.
“Diversity” provides a unique opportunity for individuals and organisations (businesses) to gain exposure and share with a large and focussed audience of like-minded people from across the world.
The organizing committee is currently raising funds to make the symposium an experience to remember! More information will be posted in the following months.
