dc.description.abstract Care farming is the therapeutic use of farming practices to provide health, social or educational care services for a range of groups of vulnerable people. This includes but is not limited to those with mental health problems, people suffering with substance abuse, adults and children with learning disabilities and disaffected youth. Literature on the process of designing for care farms is limited. This research sought to develop care-farm design guidelines for landscape architects. The study identifies and analyzes design-related themes from the academic literature relating to care farms, building on therapeutic landscape literature. The design guidelines are created based on key informant interviews that took place in Ontario in 2019. The final design guidelines can support landscape architects with necessary information to design care farms. en_US
