Tune in to ABC's Gardening Australia at 7.30pm on Fridays from February 9 to see Austin Health's Gardens and Grounds Officer and horticultural therapist, Steven Wells, guest present.

The first episode presented by Mr. Wells will visit gardens at Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, including the sensory garden. This episode includes interviews with staff members and recent patients about their use of the gardens.

"I'll be a guest presenter sharing some stories about horticultural therapy, therapeutic garden projects and the value that gardens and gardening programs can bring to different people in different situations," Mr. Wells says.

The Gardens and Grounds Project is on Facebook and Instagram.
