Chicago Horticultural Society
This grant will help to support Horticultural Therapy—Using Plants for Human Health and Well-Being, an initiative begun in 1976 to integrate horticultural programs into overall treatment plans in order to achieve the physical, psychosocial, cognitive or recreational goals of agencies and individuals. This program uses plants and gardening to engage participants in meaningful activities and help with the overall physical and mental health of participants. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
