|Patricia Karvelas - host of the Drawing Room|
This time it really is on airOn Australian Radio National, each evening, the Drive program ends, at 7:15, with a 15 minute chat in the Drawing Room. The host, Patricia Karvelas, has conversation with one or two interesting guests.
Tonight, the two people will be myself and Claire Dunn. Claire's thing is Rewilding which, broadly speaking, is bringing people and wild places back together again. Her website will tell you a lot more.
What brings us together is talking about the important connection between human health and nature. See my earlier post shinrin-yoku, Japanese for forest bathing.
In more academic circles this is referred to as Connection With Nature or CWN. There is a growing body of research in this field but Parks Victoria were way ahead of the game when 8 years ago they launched Healthy Parks Healthy People.
My story will be about about how the TrailRider enables disabled folk to get in on the act.
Tune in if you can. In case you can't I'll post the link after the broadcast so you can listen online.
