Defining Horticultural Therapy
There are four elements that are essential for an activity to qualify as horticultural therapy if it is to be considered a profession eligible for the same status as other caring professions.
- a defined treatment procedure that focuses on horticultural or gardening activities
- a client with a diagnosed problem who is in treatment for that problem
- a treatment goal that can be measured and evaluated
- a qualified professional to deliver the treatment
