Welcome!
The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Horticultural Therapy Contract Services Program builds on aproud 30-year history of providing horticultural therapy programming to health and human serviceagencies in the Chicago region. More than 150 agencies have advanced individual and group goalsby introducing thousands of people with disabilities and older adults to gardening, indoor plantsand nature-based activities.Imagine a group of people you serve enjoying a warm summer morning outdoors while tendinga garden alive with vibrant color, texture and fragrance. Elsewhere, the ingredients for salsa areharvested from the vegetable patch and the group prepares and shares the rewards. Indoors, plantspropagated and grown by residents begin to brighten dining tables and other common areas,creating a better sense of home; perhaps a group of women new to the assisted-living communityis discussing the issues of the day while the fresh scent of evergreens from the holiday greens deco-rations they are making fills the air. These scenes are readily created at your agency by registeredBotanic Garden horticultural therapists working in partnership with your staff. We also offer afull range of support services, publications and accredited professional education opportunitiesto improve the horticultural therapy skills of your agency staff and volunteers.Visit www.chicagobotanic.org/therapy for details.This packet contains information about our contract services program; an application is included.Upon initial review, an important orientation meeting will be scheduled at your agency. Followingthis initial meeting, agreements are signed and programming begins. We look forward to receivingyour application and introducing the individuals you serve to an enriching new program.Eugene A. Rothert, HTR, ManagerHorticultural Therapy Services
