Horticultural Therapy (HT) engages people in gardening and plant-based activities to promote well-being and rehabilitation. Bullington Gardens uses HT to improve the lives of children and adults whom we serve. Special needs children and young adults in Henderson County Public Schools have been the primary focus of these efforts. Seniors in our area residential and day facilities are also encouraged to participate. We offer programs that pinpoint specific populations such as those with disabiling conditions in order to broaden their wellness experiences.
Based in the therapy garden, this program offers plant-based activities to students and adults with special needs as a means of skill development, rehabilitation and wellness. Students tend gardens, make terrariums, do plant crafts and enjoy the gardens and grounds on a weekly basis.
