“Horticulture As Therapy" DVD

Horticulture As Therapy features Master level horticultural therapists Christine Pollard and Mitchell Hewson.

Gardening For Life created this DVD to provide a clear explanation of the benefits of Horticultural Therapy, to make it easily understood and embraced as a necessary alternative therapy in our health care system. We also hope to motivate those already working in health care or horticulture to consider extending their career to this satisfying field of study.
