      Leading medical experts from Einstein Healthcare Network will present on a variety of health topics sure to appeal to gardeners during the PHS Speaker Series at the Philadelphia Flower Show.

      Anne T. Wieland, CTRS, MHA will give a talk entitled “Lighten Your Load With Adaptive Gardening Devices.”

      The benefits from gardening include a sense of accomplishment, enjoyment, relaxation, and much more. It is important that people have access to their garden with minimal difficulty. There are options to continue gardening for people who utilize a wheelchair or have difficulty bending down towards the ground. Tools are important to all gardeners. The right tools can make a difference in a person’s ability to perform garden tasks. Ms. Wieland’s presentation will include demonstrations of several adaptive garden devices including information about their benefits in regard to neurological disabilities and orthopedic disabilities.
