We are emailing organizations and individuals connected to health, horticulture and related fields with information on our Horticultural Therapy Certificate program which begins in February 2013.

VanDusen’s Horticultural Therapy Certificate Program provides training for professionals to add Horticultural Therapy (HT) to their existing skill set, and for people wishing to pursue a career in HT. This program is ideal for recreation and occupational therapists, activity workers, counsellors, healthcare workers, teachers, landscape designers and architects, and coordinators of floristry, urban farm, ecological restoration, nature interpretation, community garden and school garden programs.

This certificate program is recognized by the Canadian Horticultural Therapy Association towards their professional registration process.

If the subject sounds of interest to you or your colleagues, I have attached a PDF brochure which you are welcome to share. More information is also available on our website at http://vancouver.ca/vandusen/adultEducation/hortTherapy.htm
Thank you for your time and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
