Description

These proceedings contain the presentations from a landmark joint conference between AHTA and PPC, the two leading organizations promoting research, teaching, and practice in horticultural therapy. In this contributed volume, the top names in horticultural therapy address universal design of outdoor spaces and their therapeutic applications, the theme of the conference. The most outstanding feature of this volume is the combination of information from designers of therapeutic and healing gardens and the practitioners that use the gardens.
