Fundraising: AHTA Garden Party

Sign up today!


Thank you for choosing to host a Garden Party in support of the American Horticultural Therapy Association. Your support will allow AHTA to continue to support the profession of horticultural therapy and therefore continue to improve outcomes for individuals who receive horticultural therapy services.

Here is how this works:

  • Funds raised through your Garden Party will be used to support credentialing of horticultural therapists. The association needs a minimum of $75,000 to develop a certification exam.
  • This is a core value of AHTA and is critical for the continued growth of the profession. Credentialing will help to raise the profession of horticultural therapy.
  • It will also bring horticultural therapy to the same professional level of other allied healthcare professions. Credentialing helps to ensure therapists meet established standards of care.
  • This will improve individual participant’s safety and outcomes.

Garden Party

We are asking individuals or organizations to host a Garden Party. 

  • You may choose to host a party on a date that is convenient for you or your organization.
  • A Garden Party can be hosted at a private garden, public garden, or your facility’s therapy garden.
  • A Garden Party will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy time with friends and raise awareness and funds to help support the profession of horticultural therapy.

This Garden Party Fundraiser Kit has helpful information to help make your Garden Party a success. Once again, thank you for your support of the American Horticultural Therapy Association. Once AHTA has received a garden party interest form your organization, we will customize the Garden Party Kit for your event.
