The Horticultural Therapy Program of Rhode Island is a organization committed to teach horticulture to those needing to serve community service hours ordered by a judge. By restoring the gardens of several nonprofit agencies, the spirit of the community service worker will be revitalized by incorporating the 4 principles of horticultural therapy: cognitive, social, physical and emotional. Upon successful completion of the program, each graduate will have earned critical documentaiton to use as a tool for employment, our environment will be improved and our community will be safer.
