Explore the joys of creating a sensory garden. While all gardens can have healing effects, the idea of ‘sensory gardening‘ goes beyond. This is a hands-on day that will also offer you the opportunity to learn how to propagate a variety of plants to help you start your very own sensory garden. Experienced horticultural therapist Australia Steven Wells will be the keynote presenter. He is qualified in nursing and horticulture and has achieved a number of awards for his work. AB Bishop, an experienced horticulturist and co-author with Angus Stewart of “The Australian Native Garden”, will talk about sensory aspects of the Australian flora and enlighten us on those extra special plants that we can use in our own gardens. Attendees will discover how a vision-impaired person experiences gardens from Vision Australia, as well as learning how to guide and explain gardens or bushland to someone with little or no vision. Cranbourne Gardens horticulture manager John Arnott and horticulturalist Nikki May will explore sensory features of the Peppermint Garden of the Australian Garden with participants.
