The positive benefits of exposure to nature and green spaces related wellness are well documented. A structured walk in a garden setting combination with reflective journaling may result in profound outcomes for people suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), depression, and other types of trauma – all of which are becoming more prevalent in our current society. The Morikami Japanese Gardens in Florida and Bloedel Reserve in Washington State both have developed programs of this type, which have proven to be invaluable and life-changing to community members suffering from the effects of trauma. A therapeutic walking program promotes well-being and resilience in the face of adversity. With the large population of veterans residing in Maryland communities, plus countless local medical providers serving clients suffering from a diversity of challenges, Brookside Gardens is perfectly located and poised to serve these populations in an effort to improve wellness outcomes for a broad range of Maryland and regional residents.
