Green care: nature-based interventions for vulnerable people

ByJOE SEMPIK, RACHEL BRAGG

This chapter begins by defining green care and outlining the key types of green care available in the UK, before giving a historical overview. An overview of different ways of experiencing and engaging with nature is then presented in order to illustrate the key elements of a range of green care interventions. The chapter concludes by exploring the evidence base for green care.
