I have been meaning to do this for a while, in fact, I have been meaning to update the blog for a while. Not to dwell on what I should and shouldn’t have done, but here is the report I completed examining horticultural therapy practice between the UK and North America. It was funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
If all works as planned, it should be available to download and read by clicking on the link below, which will open the report as a PDF file.
Therapeutic Horticulture – Horticulture as a Medical Treatment
I have just posted this on my sister blog http://www.thetravellinght.wordpress.com but thought that it was worth posting on here too.
Here is a video which takes you through all of the gardens, in order, from my Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. Included is at least one picture from each stop with the names and places included.
If you require any further information about my project or the places I visited, please message me.
As you may be aware I was fortunate enough to be awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship to travel to Canada and the USA to examine the use of horticultural therapy as a medical treatment.
Applications are now open for people to travel in 2015 so if you would are based in the UK and would like to travel to see best practice in your occupation with the aim of using the knowledge gained to improve your profession, community and the people you work with then please follow this link: http://www.wcmt.org.uk/applications/apply-online-for-a-2015-winston-churchill-fellowship.html
I must say that they have been the most organised, professional, supportive and understand organisation I have ever worked with and would encourage people to apply.
