Recognition where it's due
To further its mission to promote and advance the practice of horticultural therapy as a therapeutic intervention and rehabilitative modality, AHTA sponsors an annual awards program to recognize the contributions of individuals whose personal initiative and achievement define outstanding performance in the field. By nominating deserving colleagues, AHTA members are direct participants in broadening awareness and acceptance of the practice and elevating the field’s stature, both as an accepted rehabilitative modality and as a profession.
AHTA awards honor excellence in: humanitarian service; publication of a book, paper, or research; HT program services delivered in a community setting; therapeutic garden design; and academic achievement. Awards are presented at the AHTA Annual Conference held each fall.
