Ontario Parks Association is excited to announce that we have collaborated with The Plant Lady Inc. to deliver a half-day webinar called Indoor Plant Maintenance.
This presentation has been developed as an extensive guide to providing professional care to indoor plants in offices.
Since the first lockdown occurred in 2020, we have gained greater insight into the detriments of the indoor environment. Indoor plants help bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor environments, making inside spaces healthier places to be. Plants help to create warm and inviting atmospheres, reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, increase productivity, and even improve air quality. In today's world, biophilic design should be incorporated into every space and we highly encourage you to include it in your back to work plan. Indoor plants are a wonderful addition to any space, but can be difficult to properly maintain. It can be useful for organizations to designate indoor horticulturists to perform this work, which is why we are offering this training.
This course will cover:
The office environment in 2021
Mental and physical benefits of biophilic design
Project planning: how to create an inclusive, practical and professional space
Plant, container and soil selection
Plant maintenance and service plan
Plant disease and pest management
There will be a 30 minute quiz at the end of this webinar. Within 2 weeks of completing this course you will receive a letter from Ontario Parks Association acknowledging your participation in the course, advanced knowledge of indoor horticulture and efforts towards helping us achieve our mandate of Protecting Tomorrow Today®.
