Research at Texas A&M University

Gardens can be therapeutic for people. At Texas A&M University, in College Station, TX, there is research in progress in the Department of Horticultural Sciences studying these human issues in horticulture. Most of this research is being conducted under the guidance of Dr. Jayne Zajicek and Dr. Joseph Novak. Some of the topics of this research include gardening with children, gardening with special populations and focused educational studies on teacher training, environmental attitudes and nutritional behavior.
