Creating a sanctuary of peace, beauty and fragrance

HEALING GARDEN DESIGN DIPLOMA

12 Lessons

This course is designed with specific emphasis on creating a garden which is a healing environment. Spiritual gardening teaches you how to work with nature’s own rhythms and understand how to maintain the delicate balance of the earth’s ecosystem. With the growth in complementary therapy practices, spiritual centres and retreats including hospital gardens, there is a growing need for people who can offer this approach to garden design. Healing garden design expands and complements traditional courses in garden design. It focuses on developing your intuitive and creative powers as well as giving you the opportunity to design the layout and planting of different types of healing gardens.

No previous knowledge of horticulture or design is required for this course, only an interest in gardening and a desire to create a healing sanctuary in the garden. You will be taught the principles and key elements required to make different types of healing gardens. Practicing landscape artists and designers would also find this course useful if they are looking to expand their skills and knowledge into this growing field of garden design.
