Focus on HT Videos

We have frequently been asked for effective tools to communicate the benefits of horticultural therapy and to influence decision-makers about the advantages of a professionally run horticultural therapy program. In response to these requests, beginning in 2007, the Institute started producing a series of educational videos. Your tax-deductible donation will assist us to develop a quality product that inform and inspire those interested in promoting and sustaining human health through the medium of gardening. The first two videos, highlighting youth and elders in the garden, illustrate the power of the garden for health and well-being.

If you would like a link to download the videos for use in presentations, use the form at the bottom of the page.

Gardening with Gutner

This video was produced by a local news station in Portland, Maine, and highlights the therapeutic horticulture program of two past HTI graduates, Laura Rumpf, HTR and Colleen Griffin, HTR. They have been developing the program on the campus of Southern Maine Community College. The video exemplifies the advantages of collaboration between HTI graduates even though they did not attend the certificate program at the same time. Both have very similar approaches to HT due to the culture and learning environment at HTI. Colleen said in addition, the video serves another purpose.  “During the 2021 conference, both Laura and I participated in a workshop hosted by HTI,  where we all vowed to bring awareness of the benefits of HT to their community and beyond. It took us a while, but we have now fulfilled that promise.”
