Our Mission

To facilitate the human plant connection for nurturance, growth 

and restoration of the physical body and soul.

Welcome to Horticultural Therapy

  • Horticultural Therapists use plants and horticultural activities to help individuals or groups reach cognitive, emotional, physical or social goals. Often times they work with other professionals to attain identified goals. Examples of goals might be: an increase in socialization or focusing skills, balance, following instructions, and fine or gross motor skills. 

Nurture Cultivate Grow Restore

  • Horticultural Therapy Santa Cruz works with a variety of populations, with an emphasis on memory care and dementia. Our goals are to provide Horticultural Therapy programming to a broad range of people. We hope to  be a catalyst for personal and positive growth through purposeful gardening and horticultural activities.
