Volunteer Training Program

Volunteers must complete a 12-hour training curriculum prior to involvement with the therapeutic horticulture program. Much of the training if offered in an online format via Canvas. The training covers the basics of therapeutic horticulture, describes the characteristics of special populations, discusses adaptive gardening and more. The training includes hands-on components in the greenhouse as well as lectures, readings and quizzes. To find out more information, email Leah Diehl at elizabeth.diehl@medicine.ufl.edu.
