AHTA Nurtures Growth

The purpose of the American Horticultural Therapy Association (AHTA) is to advance the practice of horticulture as therapy to improve human well-being. It is the only national organization in the United States dedicated to this goal.
AHTA is a membership-driven organization whose services are implemented by a Board of Directors, committees, work teams, and a network of regional chapter affliates.
It is vitally concerned with professional development and education of horticultural therapy practitioners. Professional registration with AHTA is based on academic acheivement, work, and volunteer experience.
AHTA disseminates program and technical information through publications, regional events and national conferences.
AHTA maintains a listing of universities and colleges offering programs in horticultural therapy. There are also internships in horticultural therapy offered at different facilities. For credit toward registration botanical gardens and aboreta offer information or training in horticultural therapy.
