Time spent in the garden has been proven to reduce stress, speed recovery times, and improve mood. Recently, the use of gardens and gardening to improve quality of life has become a profession. Gardens are being used to improve mental function, increase sociability, and provide interesting methods for physical therapy. Jeanine will discuss the unique design considerations for healing gardens at home and within institutional settings as well as look at some healing gardens that are currently in use. Learn more about this alternative approach to garden design. This class will include a short walk around the Arboretum to see areas that may provide ideas for your own healing garden design.
