Horticultural therapy (HT) is a dynamic intervention that uses gardening and nature-based activities to promote therapy and wellness for people with physical, emotional, developmental or mental disabilities in professionally conducted programs. This website was designed to serve participants and their families, volunteers interested in supporting programs, Interns seeking professional certification as well as professionals and service providers interested in offering therapeutic horticulture opportunities.

Use the tabs to find information about the types of gardens, programs and professionals available as well as links to specific ones in North Carolina.

Information on research, accessibility, gardening, and health are also provided as well as opportunities to get connected via email and Facebook and additional resources of interest.

The Carolinas Horticultural Therapy Network was formed in 2012 to connect, motivate and inspire people interested in or working in the field of horticultural therapy in North & South Carolina, and promoting (HT) as a profession. Meetings are currently planned semiannually at rotating sites. Join the CHTN listserv on the Get Connected page.
