Making a Difference by Understanding What Affords Garden Visiting
After many years of employment in business management and following completion of an undergraduate degree in environmental studies, Dorothy undertook her PhD thesis seeking to understand participation in garden visiting, within a conceptual framework of affordance theory. Dorothy’s particular area of interest is in the interactions between people and socio-natural environments. Her research into garden visiting continues and she has also published studies on wine tourism, visitors to horticultural shows and the perception of nature by visitors to Jiuzhaigou National Park in China and the New Forest National Park in England.
