Gardens For Veterans With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

February 23, 2012

On The Therapeutic Landscapes Network blog Naomi Sachs writes about Michelle Parkins, a veteran and self-proclaimed Army brat who wrote her Masters of Landscape Architecture thesis on the therapeutic value of gardens and gardening for veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and other combat related issues.

Michelle, in collaboration with Annie Kirk, created Therapeutic Gardens for Veterans. You can visit the group on Facebook and LinkedIn. You can also join ongoing discussions about therapeutic gardens at their Land8Lounge page.

For the full article, more information about Michelle and a link to her completed thesis plus a beautiful photograph she took herself go here.
