It has long been said that gardens can heal the soul and replenish our spirits. And for years we have been coming together in one form or another to cultivate soil, produce food and experience a social connection. The term Therapeutic landscapes is a great descriptive umbrella and in our life journey we may all benefit from the physical and mental wellbeing that a considered landscape would provide. Despite the possible, cognitive, psychological or physical challenges we may experience.
