horticultural therapy

Our son came to Rimland ten years ago. Our family has watched him thrive with the care and support from the Rimland staff. I feel we are one big family and I am grateful for the support I have received.

Horticultural Therapy 2.0

rimland_home21  Summer is here at last, and the Horticulture Therapy Program (HT) is once again in full swing. This year the HT Spring/Summer Program focuses on promoting gardening as a leisure activity that can be enjoyed by all clients, regardless of their level of functioning, while enhancing individualized skills. Clients have even more opportunities to participate in community outings this year, while developing practical knowledge of horticulture and how it applies to daily living. This season’s program focuses on the development of leisure skills through horticulture, encompassing art, music, food preparation, and increased community socialization through gardening.
