A virtual conference October 29- 30, 2021.

This is a joint symposium encompassing

  • the 15th International People Plant Symposium,
  • the 48th American Horticultural Therapy Association Conference, and
  • the 2nd International Symposium on Horticultural Therapies.

Image of seniors,child and person in whell chair gardeningWe are particularly excited about this symposium because it is a collaboration of the International People Plant Council, the American Horticultural Therapy Association, and the International Society for Horticultural Sciences. It is the 30th anniversary of the first people plant symposium. And it is the first time in 20 years the people plant symposium has been hosted by the United States.

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers, educators, and practitioners to continue to discuss, identify, encourage and expand the research used by professional and trade associations to clearly demonstrate the benefits of horticulture in wellness and quality of life. This research facilitates the expansion of programs in diverse areas from urban planning to healthcare.
