Human Issues in Horticulture

  • Interesting topic
  • Very narrowly focused
If your notion of the relationship between humans and horticulture is restricted to Johnny Appleseed, you need to take a look at Human Issues in Horticulture where you’ll learn a bundle about the use of horticulture as a tool for helping troubled people. Examples include the Green Brigades, with diversional programs in horticulture for juvenile offenders, Project GREEN, aimed at enabling teaching to integrate environmental concepts into science and math curricula, and the use of horticulture for helping people recover from brain injury. I always derived a benefit from working in my garden, and the many interesting ideas here reinforce my own experiences.
