GGlogoDeveloping an Institutional Garden for The Ottawa Hospital

Five grad students from the Health: Science, Technology, Policy GGreportsmallinterdisciplinary program at Carleton University have compiled an extraordinary resource capturing the diverse benefits and designs of institutional gardens, while developing a model to support the development of a therapeutic garden (short-term) and institutional food production (long-term) at The Ottawa Hospital.

Under the direct supervision of HSTP faculty member Edana Cassol and Project SOIL co-lead Irena Knezevic, the five students—Vanessa Handley, Dania Koudieh, Alex Marshall, Fatimah Mirza and Charles Ozzoude—compiled a comprehensive report (1.1 MB pdf) for their capstone project, as well as a Summary Report (640 kB pdf), an Executive Summary, and an infographic. GG_Infographic
