Join Cantrece Jones, owner of Aura Plant Studio, as she discusses the power of plant therapy and how you can harness nature’s healing potential. Plant therapy—or horticulture therapy—allows people to interact with plants to reduce their anxiety and feel calmer. There is a deep genetic connection that human beings have with nature that makes them feel more at ease when they are interacting with it. Bringing more plants and greenery inside your home or gardening in your yard or patio can have a dramatic effect on your wellbeing.
Cantrece Jones is the president of Acuity Design Group (ADG). She cultivated her favorite hobby into a new business, Aura Plant Studio, where she not only sells beautiful plants but also lends her space to others who don’t have a storefront to allow them to promote their products. Jones currently serves as a member of the American Planning Association’s Jacksonville and Atlanta Chapters. She is an active board member of the Winston Family YMCA, Jacksonville Humane Society, Jacksonville Community Land Trust, the Cathedral District, and the HCA Market Advisory Board. Additionally, she conducts marketing strategies and branding workshops for entrepreneurs through the Small Business Administration, the city of Jacksonville, Broward County, and more. Jones has a bachelor’s degree in communications and graphic design from the University of North Florida. She has lived and worked in the Jacksonville area for more than 20 years. Her military upbringing has allowed her to travel and live in many places around the globe. She enjoys cycling, gardening, and traveling with her husband (and her two fur babies).
