The landscape for healing

I just love it when related ideas cross paths. Just as I was preparing to launch my Place Keepers web site last week, the new Therapeutic Landscapes Network showed its face to the world, with a mission that is very compatible with that of Place Keepers:

We are an international, multidisciplinary community of designers, health and human service providers, scholars, gardeners, and nature enthusiasts who believe that access to nature is an innate need and a basic human right, and that contact with nature, both wild and designed, enables people to live fuller, richer, healthier lives.

I'm all for that and plan to keep an eye on the TLN blog.
