Horticultural therapy is currently being used in our West Palm Beach center, where we provide disability services, aged care facilities and a range of community settings, including people’s homes and community gardens. The term horticultural therapy sessions conducted by us covers a wide variety of techniques and processes in which we use gardens and garden based activities to promote the physical, mental and social health of participants.

Sunshine Recovery Center provides different sessions for its patients. Amongst them is direct services session. In this session our professional therapists design, prepare, and lead a 50-minute session with up to 15 participants per session. Sessions are conducted in the distinguished Buehler Enabling Garden during the growing season at West Palm Beach Center.

Another type of session, which is conducted by us, is the consulting session. Our professional staff is experienced in providing professional consultation during the planning phase of a garden installation to ensure maximum benefit and accessibility for the users of a specific garden. Our consultants will develop conceptual plans and provide a bridge to working with those who construct the garden. We are also pleased to consult on creating accessible, inclusive and welcoming spaces and programs for people with special needs.

Educational sessions are also conducted at our centers. We provide professionals with experience in a compatible therapeutic or educational field with the required background to use horticultural therapy techniques. Our sessions are week long immersion experiences at the Garden.

Last but not the least, is the speakers session in which our therapists bring a wealth of experience to share with people who join us. Our speakers conduct brief lectures to multi-day experiences on such topics as therapeutic garden design, selection of plant material, accessibility issues, and the use of therapeutic horticulture with specific populations.
