In this course you will learn about sensory gardens, including the important design elements and plant selection, and the major benefits and functions. You will explore how to incorporate the five senses into an outdoor garden and also discover how it is possible to create an indoor sensory garden.
Finally, you will learn the ‘sensory circle’ approach to horticultural therapy, which is particularly useful when working with people with Alzheimer’s disease.
At the end of the course there is also a section about plant safety.
This course is approved by ‘NAPA’ and constitutes 4 CPD Hours.
You can enrol several members of staff at your home individually (each individual would have to pay and enrol separately) but you can also create a Group, allocate a Group Leader and then he/she can place the order online for multiple users and they would be the main contact for your Group.
Please check the ‘Group’ option to enable you to enrol and pay for multiple users. If buying access to more than one course you must choose a different ‘Group Name’ for each course. On completion of payment you will be allocated the number of course places based on your quantity purchased. As Group Leader you will then be able to manage your Group(s), add users etc via the Groups Dashboard and staff will receive login details to undertake the course.
