National Horticultural Therapy Week
March 20th - 26th was National Horticultural Therapy Week...
Spring officially began with the vernal equinox, which occurred on March 20, 2016. This was an ideal time to focus our collective energies on elevating recognition of our individual and professional accomplishments as horticultural therapists. Each year, AHTA coordinates the efforts of regional networking groups, affiliated horticulturaly therapy programs, and AHTA members to collaborate in celebrating the profession on a national and local level.
Here are some of the activities that were planned by AHTA members:
Susan Morgan, of The Horticultural Link, LLC
Perkins School for the Blind Celebrated National Horticultural Therapy Week
Lee Shahay, of the Francis E. Parker Home, Highland Park, NJ
Laura DePrado, HTR, MaryAnne McMillan, HTR, and Jean D'Amore, HTR
University of Tennessee
By hosting a variety of special events or activities, we're able to collectively elevate recognition and appreciation for our programs and our profession. This spring, set aside time to refocus, refresh, and reconnect with your wonderful horticultural therapy colleagues and worthy professional ideals. Take a moment to share with your colleagues all that you are doing --as an individual and as a professional-- to encourage others to help expand and elevate horticultural therapy as a profession. Let us know how you celebrated National Horticultural Therapy Week by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
