Come learn about Horticulture Therapy (HT), the practice of using horticulture as therapy to improve human well-being. Horticulture therapy is not only a rapidly emerging profession; the therapeutic benefits of peaceful garden environments have been understood since ancient times. Today HT is recognized as a practical and viable treatment with wide ranging benefits for people in therapeutic, vocational, and wellness programs.
Presenter Beverly Brown is a registered Horticultural Therapist with her own practice. She is an Associate Professor at Nazareth College and has developed a newly offered Horticulture Therapy minor there. Beverly will also talk about Herb Haven.
