Horticultural therapy is not a new form of treatment!

“Horticultural therapy has a long history, possibly dating back over two thousand years to ancient Greece or ancient Egypt. The real science of this alternative therapy began to be conducted in the 1800s, when Dr. Benjamin Rush started to study and record benefits of gardening on patients with mental illnesses.” (Working with a Horticultural Therapist, The Therapeutic Benefits of Gardening, first paragraph)
