The NC State  Extension Gardener Program has partnered with the North Carolina Botanical Garden at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to create an exciting Therapeutic Horticulture, fully online, self-paced, learning program teaching the theory, practice, and profession of Therapeutic Horticulture.

The courses are structured to support vibrant engagement via discussion threads, and assignment feedback. They provide an exciting opportunity to research, discuss, and reflect on people/plant relationships and are suitable for anyone interested in learning more about this effective therapeutic method, including allied health professionals and other practitioners.

The second course equips students with the ability to design therapeutic horticulture treatment interventions for a wide variety of sites and participant populations.
