I'll be speaking at the Chesterfield council on aging next Monday the 23rd as part of their luncheon program that takes place at the Chesterfield senior center at noon time. My talk will begin after lunch. For information call 413.296.4007.
I'll present an overview of healing gardens in the past, give some research findings on the therapeutic benefits of gardens and nature, and show some current examples of healing spaces including my own work.
I've included some historical images I found compelling that will be part of my talk.
