Horticulture as Therapy


Posted by justtracy | Posted in Horticultural Therapy | Posted on 26-02-2013

I discovered this really interesting organization and website rom the American Horticulture Therapy Association.  Lots of great information and events.

In 2013, National Horticultural Therapy Week will be celebrated the week of March 17th. 

“Spring officially begins with the vernal equinox, which occurs on March 20, 2013, at 7:02 A.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere. This is an ideal time to focus our collective energies on elevating recognition of our individual and professional accomplishments as horticultural therapists. Each year, AHTA coordinates the efforts of regional networking groups, affiliated HT programs, and AHTA members to collaborate in celebrating the profession on a national and local level.”
