We provide a well-documented effective therapeutic modality that uses horticulture and gardening to promote health, well-being and social inclusion among vulnerable people.
Nurturing plants helps us cope, find calm and resilience. We can develop a sense of pride and accomplishment. In caring for plants, we care for ourselves.
How We Work
The Hort is a leading provider of therapeutic horticulture. We partner with teams on-site to develop and design gardens that support your residents’ needs to de-stress, reconnect, self-regulate and socialize while finding more joy through plants. Participants engage at their ability level with programming that is customized to meet the needs of your group and location. We provide these services in workplaces, hospitals, supportive housing, older adult centers, mental health and treatment centers, schools and Alternative-to-Sentencing and correctional facilities.
