This course is about creating a garden of sacred or symbolic meaning. We shall draw inspiration from examples of such gardens in various cultures, places and eras; we shall examine different ways of creating meaning, such as through ornaments, plants and the structure of the space; and we shall then look at how you can create your own symbolic garden, however large or small a space you may have.
