In our July-August issue, we reprinted a great story about sensory gardens from Spirituality & Health (which, it just so happens, was our 2010 Independent Press Award winner for health/wellness coverage). Sensory gardens, if you’re not familiar with the term, are gardens designed to take full advantage of our senses, inviting touch and playing with sounds and smells in ways that regular gardens often do not. In many cases existing within larger botanical gardens, they’re also often designed with the needs of people with disabilities in mind.
