Innovation in Healing Gardens
Following the recommendations of federal, state, and county officials, the Chicago Botanic Garden is postponing the Gardens that Heal seminar and Healthcare Garden Design Certificate program. Please join the Healthcare Garden Design interest list to receive the revised dates once they are available.
An eight–day program led by national experts in multidisciplinary fields. The coursework includes case studies, group projects, field trips, and lectures.
You will get the latest research on how to creatively design, manage, and evaluate healthcare gardens.
Learn evidence-based garden design that:
- Promotes the health and well-being of patients and visitors
- Incorporates tailored design components for specific patient populations
- Contributes to the reduction of staff stress and absenteeism
- Is applicable to other restorative landscapes
Why should you enroll?
- This comprehensive program is the only one of its kind in the country.
- When you complete the program, you’ll achieve 40 professional development credits.
- The setting is like no other—385 acres of gardens and natural areas, an on-site laboratory.
