Event description

Description

Gardeners know the theraputic benefits of working in their garden. Therapeutic, educational, and recreational programs have caught the gardening bug and are increasingly incorporating gardening into their practice. The incorporation of horticultural therapy can improve the experience of participants in garden-based therapy, education, and recreation programs.

In this workshop you will learn about Horticultural Therapy and how to incorporate horticultural therapy principles and practices into new and existing programs and community projects. The program is taught utilizing a mix of lecture, discussion, and lots of hands-on activities.

Mike has been an educator for UW-Extension since 2001. First serving as a county educator, he created gardening programs with the visually impaired, incarcerated and limited ability audiences. As the state director for the Master Gardener Program, he uses a horticultural therapy framework to train volunteers to have more meaningful programs for themselves and their target audiences. Mike has an AHTA certificate in horticultural therapy.
