American Horticultural Therapy Association Journal

American Horticultural Therapy Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization concerned with the promotion and development of Horticultural Therapy programming and is a champion of barrier-free, therapeutic gardens that enable everyone to work, learn, and relax in the garden. This organization is for Horticultural therapists who are skilled at creating garden spaces that accommodate people with a wide range of abilities. People with physical or mental disabilities benefit from gardening experiences as part of AHTA programs, and they learn skills, adaptations, and gardening methods that allow for continued participation at home. The American Horticultural Therapy Association has helped horticultural therapy gain acceptance as a unique and dynamic human service program. AHTA publishes an annual journal: The Journal of Therapeutic Horticulture. AHTA membership is necessary to be able to access the annual issue. The fee for membership is on the pricey side, and reflects the professional goal of the journal.
