Horticultural Therapy is a formal practice that uses plants, horticultural activities, and the garden landscape to promote well-being for its participants.

Traditionally, it's known as engagements of a person in gardening and plant-based activities, facilitated by a trained therapist to achieve specific therapeutic treatment goals. The visual aesthetics of plants are known to elicit feelings of inner peace, which generates positive emotions toward a meaningful appreciation of life.

Direct contact with plants guides the individual's focus away from stress enhancing their overall quality of life.

Whistling Gardens currently offers informal garden tours and garden education workshops to bridge the gap between participants and nature. Formal consultations with our Medicinal Garden Practitioner or a referral to Horticultural therapists who are specially educated and trained members of rehabilitation teams are available.

Who May Benefit from Horticulture Therapy? Seniors, Long Term Care Residents, Mental Health Clients, Persons with Dementia, Trauma or Grief Recovery, School Age Children and Anyone having a desire to connect with nature.
