Instructor: NYU Langone Medical Center Horticultural Therapy Services

No image available In the mid-1970s, one of the nation's first horticultural therapy programs began at NYU Langone's Rusk Rehabilitation. Adults work with trained horticultural therapists on activities that can help rehabilitate physical, cognitive, social, and emotional functioning. By working with plants, participants can gain a sense of personal accomplishment, productivity, self-reliance, and independence. NYBG Site Visits are led by Matthew Wichrowski and Gwenn Fried.
