Horticulture Training Center
Who We Are
The Horticulture Therapy program provides therapeutic outcomes for people through documented modalities, work and training experiences in greenhouse operations. The program also uses horticulture as a way to engage the public and provide meaningful community engagement for people served.
The purpose of horticultural therapy is to connect people with nature. A trained therapist facilitates a wide array of therapeutic and enriching experiences while expanding knowledge on plant life and materials. The therapeutic garden environment offers individuals the opportunity to work with soil and follow cycles of the plant world through creative expression, improved self-esteem, attainment of new skills and a sense of inclusion with nature and others.
