Department of Horticulture Seminar: Elements of a Healing Garden

Speaker: Mark Dwyer, Horticulturist, Landscape Prescriptions by MD, Jansville, WI

In this presentation Mark will talk about many of the design features that can be successfully included in a design for a healing or enabling garden. He will talk about some of the plant materials appropriate for the setting but how the actual layout and features can encourage engagement and relaxation for a wide audience of users but also have the potential to be utilized for active programmatic use (physical therapy, horticulture therapy, etc.). Mark will also discuss specific enabling features that will accommodate specific users, encourage engagement and provide a welcoming garden space for all visitors and users.  Mark’s current involvement with the design and management of the Edgerton (WI) Hospital Healing Garden will also be a focus.
