Our modern life can be so frenetic and confusing. We’re indoors all day, get out of work after dusk, and come home to the flickering TV or the tappety-tap of computer keys.
Is it any wonder that the slow, simple act of gardening is so refreshing? There’s something magical about working up a sweat, hearing the birds chirruping and smelling the damp duskiness of leaf mold and cut stems.
Gardening has long been used as therapy for people who are elderly, ill, or who experience their senses differently, and it’s easy to see why when we look at how curative it is for the rest of us.
Join us on October 26th for a diverse look at the topic of Therapy and Healing in the Garden. We’ll be welcoming our first-ever guest blogger, Naomi Alena Sachs, ALSA, a landscape architect and director of the Therapeutic Landscapes Network, who will join our usual array of designers from around the U.S. and the world.
