What is Horticultural Therapy?

Horticultural therapy is a process in which plants and gardening activities are used to improve the body, mind and spirit of those people for all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Horticultural therapy is currently being used in hospital, rehabilitation centres, disability services, aged care facilities and a range of community settings, including people's homes and community gardens.
