"You are doing wonderful work. Had a visitor from your
province, who mentioned the good work you are doing . . .
Thanks for your great newsletters."

hours of experience. She thanks all who participate in her programs - including the Halifax HT Gardening Group who sent
her this lovely card after a session with her.
Canadian Horticultural Therapy Association describes Horticultural Therapy (HT) as a practice using plants and the natural world to improve the social, spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing of individuals who participate in it.

The association has devised a means for professionals who practice Horticultural Therapy to voluntarily become registered. Registration is an active way of establishing credibility among other professions. HT is a professional discipline that is theory-based and universally adaptable.
The process is a long one, involving workshops, publication and volunteering. With volunteer work in HT, 6,000 hours are required. Volunteering in related area requires 10,000 hours or an agreed up combination of the two. See CHTA Voluntary Professional Registration for more information.

Margaret's extensive background and experience in horticulture and garden design, combined with comprehensive studies in Horticultural Therapy have led to a strong desire to meet the needs of gardeners of all abilities.
