    Matthew Wichrowski: The Healing Power of Plants and Nature

    Matthew Wichrowski: The Healing Power of Plants and Nature

    Nature has a way of healing the soul, providing clarity and bringing peace to a troubled mind. Did you know there is a clinical specialty that uses plants and nature to heal? It is called horticultural therapy and it is absolutely incredible.

    In this interview I interview an expert in the field, Matthew J. Wichrowski, MSW HTR, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Senior Horticultural Therapist at Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Health. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the American Horticultural Therapy Association’s Journal of Therapeutic Horticulture.

    I first learned about horticultural therapy and Matthew when I read the book, How to Make a Plant Love You, by Summer Rayne Oakes. (See my interview with her here. https://youtu.be/KFPgNrhhUoY ) I was amazed to learn how plants were helping people with debilitating depression and anxiety but it could also be used to help with stroke victims and much more.

    Such an intriguing area that many of us could put to work in our daily lives. I hope you find this interview as helpful and educational as I did. You can learn more about Matthew and horticultural therapy here.

    Gene Baur: The Conscience of the Food Movement

    Gene Baur: The Conscience of the Food Movement

    Gene Baur has been hailed as “the conscience of the food movement” by Time magazine. For more than 25 years he has traveled extensively around the country, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming and our current food system.

    A pioneer in the field of undercover investigations, Gene has visited hundreds of farms, stockyards, and slaughterhouses documenting their deplorable conditions. His pictures and videos exposing factory farming cruelties have aired nationally and internationally, educating millions about the plight of modern farm animals.

    Gene has also testified in courts and before local, state, and federal legislative bodies, advocating for better conditions for farm animals. His most important achievements include winning the first-ever cruelty conviction at a U.S. stockyard and introducing the first U.S. laws to prohibit cruel farming confinement methods in Florida, Arizona, and California. His efforts have been covered by top news organizations, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Wall Street Journal. In 2008, Gene’s book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food, became a national bestseller.

    Gene, who began his activist career selling veggie hotdogs out of a VW van at Grateful Dead concerts to fund farm animal rescues, is currently Farm Sanctuary’s president. With shelters in New York and California, Farm Sanctuary provides rescue, refuge, and adoption for hundreds of farm animals each year, enabling visitors to connect with farm animals as emotional, intelligent individuals. Gene believes these animals stand as ambassadors for the billions on factory farms who have no voice, and he has dedicated his career to advocating on their behalf. Gene holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University, Northridge, and a master’s degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University.

    Peter Johnston: Bringing the Food as Medicine Message Down Under

    Meet my friend, Peter Johnston, who is helping create a wave of change in Australia. I met Peter and his colleagues at the Plantrician Project a few years ago and have wanted to interview him about his work on the other side of the world and we finally made it happen! Peter is a thoughtful and passionate human being that I hope will inspire you to make a difference in your world! (Please forgive the occasional poor connection but I made sure to ask the question again. Next time we will need to do this in person!)

    Originally from Dunedin, New Zealand, Peter became exclusively plant-based in 1991 after reading John Robbins’ book Diet for a New America whilst employed in Montreal, Canada as a post-doctoral research fellow.

    He has developed and runs a workplace-based program known as The Wholefood Solution where staff receive intensive support to go whole food plant-based for three weeks – a first for Australia! Peter is an accredited practicing dietitian with a Masters degree in Nutrition and Dietetics, has a PhD in human genetics, an honours degree in Zoology and a BA in psychology.

    Peter is driven to achieve optimum health, both in himself and in others. He is a dedicated yoga practitioner, cycles 200km on most weeks, skis very fast, and competes in speed windsurfing, with a personal best of 42 knots (77km/hr).

    Peter spent a decade as a left wing political activist campaigning in three countries and five cities.

    He runs a nutrition private practice: Perfect Human Food Consulting, offering individual consultations, workplace training, residential reboot programs, university lecturing and public speaking. Peter has spent the last 15 years working in health promotion/community development. Peter has a voracious interest in the latest research and developments in plant-based nutrition.
