the subject of an article I wrote for the _Journal of Therapeutic
Horticulture_, dated 1999. The American Horticulture Therapy Assoc. website is

I would be happy to talk with you about any aspect of healing landscapes, or
steer you to information that might help you.

and didn't get my degrees until just recently ... :)
And thank goodness for starry-eyed idealists!!
