Students Observe Horticulture Therapy in Action

Students enrolled in the Intro to Hort Therapy course recently visited Liberty Corner Enterprises, Inc. (LCE), a non-profit agency providing services and support to individuals with developmental disabilities in western NC. LCE specializes in serving adults with co-occurring mental illness and developmental disabilities. The agency has recently established a hydroponics unit in which their clients have the opportunity to grow herbs and cut-flowers for restaurants and markets in the Asheville area. Clients obtain therapeutic benefits from working in a “green”, non-threatening environment while producing valuable products for the community and gaining vocational skills. (Post by John Sherman).
