Am training to work in horticultural therapy and curious to know how much experience other people have of this field. Is a lesson indeed to see how much people miss the earth when ill or moved to a less green location. Any thoughts...?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

This sounds extremely interesting - I have never heard of it in a formal sense.I'd like to know more.I can imagine the benefits as gardening can give people a sense of achievement and purpose. It is also very grounding - literally!!Please let me know where you are studying.I have some information about gardening for people with disabilities that I will find if you are interested.I think it is along the same lines as horticultural therapy. I'll be in touch later as I have to go now.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I'm taking a certification program at the New York Botanical Garden. There is no time limit for completing this program. The program is well know. They also have a lot of other educational programs. Their web site is Kansas State University has a bachelors degree in Horticultural Thearapy. The Horticultural Therapy Assosciation may have information on research that has been done.
