Horticulture Therapy – How Do I Make It Into A Career

Q: I recently heard about the benefits of horticultural therapy. Are there classes I could attend to explore making this into a career?

A: Horticultural therapy has been a great benefit to many. It uses plants and gardening activities to benefit the psychological, social, and physical well-being of clients. I don’t know of specific local classes but there are national organizations that promote the practice. I have links to those groups as well as to local college horticulture programs at http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/horticultural-therapy-training/.
