Horticulture Therapy Programs at Innisfree Farm
Summer 2010

What is Horticulture Therapy (HT)?
HT is a client-centred practice designed to connect people with gardening, plants and the natural world in a way that meets their needs and interests. HT gardens, tools and activities are often physically accessible.

Why Horticulture Therapy?
HT goals support physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social,
and vocational well-being in a safe and healthy environment. HT facilitators are trained in working with individuals who face barriers in society, or who have special needs.

Who can benefit from Horticulture Therapy?
Anyone! Specifically, HT programs in Canada and worldwide include seniors, people with physical challenges, people living with mental health or addiction issues, at-risk youth, people with developmental disabilities, women in transition.
