About the Program
Therapeutic horticulture is the process through which participants enhance their well-being through active or passive involvement in plant and plant-related activities. You can learn more about our program, or learn more about research being conducted by SUNY ESF.
Sites and Times
Our students are involved at programs year round at the following sites, with schedules changing each semester.

We have also published a number of activity and plant care guides, including some videos if you wish to begin your own garden or therapeutic horticulture program, as well as photos of our sites and program.
We are always looking for student volunteers to join the program, and donations are always greatly appreciated to help support the program.
