National Horticultural Therapy Week

March 14–20, 2021

National Horticultural Therapy Week (NHTW) will be celebrated from March 14–20 this year. This is a week to recognize our efforts in the promotion of horticultural therapy. In years past, AHTA has recruited the networking groups, affiliated horticultural therapy programs, and members to volunteer in helping us in this effort, both on the national and local level. This year we again ask for your help!

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create many challenges for horticultural therapy programs. Let us know how you've been creative presenting your programs during the pandemic!

Some ways you can help include:

  • Contact your Governor to request a proclamation for NHTW
  • Host a virtual event during the week to celebrate  
  • Send flyers to your community announcing NHTW
  • Promote NHTW through your social media networks
  • Start a new garden in the community with the help of your clients or students
  • Create flower arrangements to set out in your offices announcing NHTW

This spring, set aside time to refocus, refresh, and reconnect with your wonderful horticultural therapy colleagues and worthy professional ideals. Let us know how you plan to celebrate National Horticultural Therapy Week by emailing [email protected].
