NEW YORK CITY, New York – The Center for Women of New York recently announced that they would be running a new course which is called Demystifying Houseplants. This will apparently teach its participants how to be a better plant parent and is hosted at the Women of New York location at Fort Totten in Queens. Classes will take place on February 3rd and 17th at 12 PM, and another course on March 2nd at 10 AM. The course will cost $5 for members and $10 for non-members per class.
Registration is currently open until the end of January and it’s fair to say that this is one of the more unusual courses on offer from the CWNY. Naturally, living in New York City means that many residents will own houseplants due to the lack of outside spaces such as yards and gardens that are typically scarce in space.
In recent years houseplants have been gaining popularity due to their numerous benefits, both physical and psychological. Not only do they improve air quality and reduce stress levels, but they also increase productivity and serve as a trendy, eco-friendly way to decorate homes and workspaces.
Also, with the rise of DIY culture, caring for plants has become a popular hobby, allowing individuals to cultivate their own indoor gardens and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature in their own homes.
