Volunteer Training Program

Therapeutic Horticulture Volunteer Training

Volunteers must complete a 12-hour training curriculum prior to involvement with the therapeutic horticulture program. Much of the training is 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. 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
