Garden Design Series with Joanne Aquilina
Wednesday 13 May 2020
The Garden Design Series lectures are a must for anyone interested in how nature, beauty and functionality can complement each other in gardens from small urban courtyards to big country estates.
This year's series feature four inspiring women in the garden design space who will each share their knowledge, ideas and experience. Topics cover will include the importance of outdoor spaces that transform, restore and soothe the soul, as well as therapeutic gardens and the relationship between beauty, care and cultural, social and environmental sustainability.
Joanne is the founder and driving force behind Therapeutic Gardens Australia. Her goal is to design, create and maintain therapeutic gardens while providing information for those wanting to develop gardens for people with special needs. She’ll discuss the Five Senses Garden in Rhodes Park, Concord, which provides tailored activities for residential care facilities, schools, hospitals and other non-for-profit organisations. The garden is also a place for the entire community, offering workshops, volunteering and a space for social connections.
