Thursday through Sunday, October 11 – 14 – Fundamentals of Horticultural Therapy

Learn how to combine a passion for gardening and helping people through the innovative field of horticultural therapy.  Join students from across the country to learn more by enrolling in Fundamentals of Horticultural Therapy, to be held at Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts, October 11 – 14, 2012.

At the non-profit Horticultural Therapy Institute (HTI), the mission is to provide education and training in horticultural therapy to those new to, or experienced with, the practice of using gardening and plants to improve the lives of others.  The faculty is dedicated to teaching best practices with passion, and past students form a community of learners that become horticultural therapy practitioners in a variety of settings.  Take one class, or the full certificate program.  With its unique format, you don’t need to live where the classes are held.  Classes are offered in a four-day intensive format to accommodate those who must travel to attend.

Class cost is $750 ($600 for full-time college students with proof of student status.)  The remaining three certificate courses will be held in Denver, Colorado and at Half Moon Bay in California.  For full class descriptions, schedules, and enrollment forms, go to, or call 303-388-0500.
