Nature-Based Therapeutics


THERAPEUTIC HORTICULTURE

Purposeful activities with plants to improve motor skills, develop self-determination, and promote community integration. 

Through purposeful therapeutic strategies, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum dedicates itself to the elimination of both physical and attitudinal barriers to horticulture, and to the introduction and inclusion of as many people as possible in the joys of watching a garden flourish.
