The North American Japanese Garden Association – NAJGA – promotes the sustainability of Japanese gardens in this part of the world. Through education, professional development, and academic research, NAJGA builds a network of industry professionals and garden enthusiasts to create and sustain gardens that better serve the needs of individuals and society.
This association sought presenters for its 2018 conference on Japanese gardens as a universal landscape form “Japan’s Gift to the World – Japanese Gardens as Global Phenomenon”. The conference is from September 29 through October 1, 2018, in Portland, Oregon. It is co-organized by the Garden Society of Japan and the Portland Japanese Garden. It will feature lectures and hands-on workshops.
As the Association was interested in discussions on the therapeutic aspect of this type of gardens, I therefore proposed my application to present my Niwatherapy© and my gardens “nature reflection©”, and this one was retained !
Now, I need to see how to organize my trip …!
