Marian talks to Sue Stuart-Smith about her new book The Well Gardened Mind: Rediscovering Nature in the Modern World.
On 10th May, Marian was due to talk to Sue Stuart-Smith at the Chiddingstone Literary Festival about her new book The Well Gardened Mind: Rediscovering Nature in the Modern World. Like many events, the festival was cancelled earlier this month, however, Marian and Sue recorded a podcast, which is now available to stream from the festival website.
Sue is a prominent psychiatrist and psychotherapist, as well as a gardener, who talks to Marian about the importance of nature to our mental and physical well being. Marian has also reviewed the book for Gardens Illustrated, issue April 2020, where she says, ‘the book leads us gently through case studies, literary references and fascinating historic vignettes to clearly show what has been hiding in plain sight: that we are part of nature and that we need to cultivate our connection in order to thrive.’
The podcast is now available on The Chiddingstone Literary Festival website.
