The Cooperative Extension Ability Garden, New Hanover County
The mission of the Ability Garden is to use horticulture as a therapeutic intervention to improve human well-being. Enhancing learning skills and encouraging emotional and behavioral growth is accomplished by fostering a connection with Nature.

The Ability Garden provides professionally led, horticultural therapy programs for people of all ages. We tailor our service to the needs of individuals who may have limited opportunities to connect with nature due to disability or socioeconomic status.
