Therapeutic horticulture is an ancient practice that focuses on the use of plants and gardening to improve mental and physical health. This can include the growth, care and maintenance of these environments as well as the simple act of spending time in gardens. Spending time with plants intrigues our innate sense of fascination. This ability of plants to capture our attention involuntarily enables us to take a “rest” from more stressful life tasks and provides us with enough space to reflect and restore our attention capacity.

Bring a friend and come enjoy a beautiful August evening with us on the farm. Register today!
