I sincerely look forward to learn more about your professional skills .. in NY or in Peru where you will enjoy the rich combination of colors, forms, shades --- all generate an imagination of aromas and 360 degrees landscapes are the constant in the Amazon Jungle... you must visit!

Not often I meet anyone who's been in RI. When I go back I hardly recognize the place, it has changed so much since I grew up there. Of course I'll join the network on L8L. And if you like it, could I try to coerce you to vote for my submission ('Pinkle Residence') in the Land8 planting design contest in the middle of the 'Lounge' page? (You'd have to 'favorite' the design as a vote.) I've only been on this site for a short time, but I find it fascinating. Now I'll see you here, on Twitter and on Facebook. Hopefully, someday I'll even get to meet you in person! Thanks for the kind comment on my photos. Jane

Loved "Prescription for Play"! Kudos to you and Tara. So much helpful information in there, and it's great to see you readily sharing that with the world so we can all be better designers!

Can't wait to see your post, Brice. I hear you about the recession. It seems endless. Strange about the color discussion. I have noticed that conversations take on negative tones...have noticed that on other Ning sites as well. Lord of the Flies? I can't tell you how valuable I think your scouting expedition will be. We're really lacking in first-hand observations of these spaces, so kudos to you for doing it and being willing to write something up. Keep in mind that LAM is always looking for people for their "Critic at large" page at the back of the magazine, and I'm sure the HTD PPN would love an article from you as well.

Apologize for the delay; been trying to drum up some work. Will this recession ever end?! Anyway, I'm in the process of pulling together my thoughts on my Phoenix visit and would have to agree with your observations regarding spikey plants and the shadeless Palo Verde. I was following the L8L conversation on color you recommended the TLN to chime in on and in the process of preparing a comment when the posting disappeared; either I'm missing something and it's still there or I'm thinking it could have been removed due to the negative tone it was taking on. Having said that, I did see your posted comment on the color green and softscape v's hardscape in therapeutic environments. Off the 4 gardens I visited - 2 at Good Sam - they all had green but each application was a bit different with some having more green than others. I think the toughest part about creating a therapeutic space in the desert environment is working with the climate - heat, plant material, etc. It appears that the most successful gardens are in areas with higher levels of precipitation that can support the necessary amounts of "lush" green plant material. I'm still at the front end of my "reading" journey into the best practice approaches to therapeutic spaces but would love to find some literature on therapeutic spaces in the desert environment; from what I observed, you gotta' tackle these spaces differently than in wetter climates. I suppose I'll hold off on further comments until I make my blog post. Thx. bB

Hi Naomi,

I'm sorry its taken me so long to get back to you. In terms of choosing a name, it looks like you went with Therapeutic Landscapes Network - congrats on making a decision. Aside from it being way harder to spell, I think therapeutic landscapes connotes a certain formal relationship whereas healing landscapes connotes a more informal relationship.
I guess the point that I'm making is that the name depends entirely on the nature of the landscapes that are being described/designed. If on the one hand, the landscapes are designed as part of a therapeutic treatment, than therapeutic is the way to go. If on the other hand, the landscapes are designed to provide a sense of harmony and healing, than healing is the way to go.
Also, I think that healing tends to be defined more broadly - encompassing all the healing arts - whereas therapeutic is much more narrowly defined in terms of western medicine and understanding.
In any event - congrats again on choosing a name. I hope the network is eminently successful.

All the Best,
Isaac
