Plant a dream and watch miracles grow

Horticultural Therapy

The Guelph Enabling Garden is proud to have a Registered Horticultural Therapist (HT) working within the Garden. The HT provides one-on-one and group-based programming specially tailored to the needs and ability of each client. Programming is available on both recurring and as-scheduled basis.

What is Horticultural Therapy?

Horticultural Therapy includes assessment, goal-setting, measuring, and documenting outcomes through specific horticultural activities. Your goals can be vocational, social/emotional, physical, cognitive, or spiritual.

Horticultural Therapy programs can have a profound effect on a person’s well-being – socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and spiritually. They can also help people gain necessary skills and confidence to enter or re-enter an employment or volunteer position as well as engaging with the world and other people in a more fulfilling way.

The HT works hands-on with you to create a holistic, healing program designed to help you achieve your goals.
