***The Arts in Health Series: Therapeutic Gardening & Autism***
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
One of the interesting developments in the emerging holistic approach to wellness has been the various ways of using gardens to promote good health and vibrant living. There are healing gardens in many medical facilities, while there is a movement toward active gardening as therapeutic in many different situations. Today’s post from The Guardian shares a project under development to serve people with autism. It has grown, like many contemporary examples, out of a parent’s experience in helping her autistic child. Located in West Wales, the Green Rocket has lessons for all of us. It may give you ideas for your own community.
