Garden Build Volunteer Opportunity In Minnesota
NAJGA member Milo Mietzner is inviting volunteers to help build a small, school-based Japanese garden in St. Paul, MN. The new garden will be located in the premises of the Parkway Montessori Middle School and is part of a Japanese language education program for students. The students themselves have also spent some time learning about Japanese gardening basics and have even composed their own garden models. To learn more about the project, contact Milo directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art and Medicine Meet
At the Harn Museum's Asian Rock Garden
With its focus on health and wellbeing, the 2016 Conference at the Morikami Museum & Gardens in Delray Beach, FL provided some impetus for an innovative collaboration between another Florida cultural destination --- the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville --- and the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital.
The museum's Asian Rock Garden and the UF Health Shand's Arts in Medicine program are at the center of this collaboration. Patients enrolled in the program are provided an opportunity to design a raking pattern for the garden and watch their design applied into the actual garden, both from the comfort of their hospital bed.
2016 Conference presenter Dr. Martin McKellar, who has been raking the garden for several years and is working with the patients for this program, provides more detail about the project HERE.
