I've worked in healthcare for over 30 years but I'm also a very keen gardener and I saw horticultural therapy as a way of bring my experience in, and love for these two areas together. I was so pleased to find the course as it allowed me to learn more about horticultural therapy while still working full time. I've now begun applying for jobs in the hort therapy field and am so excited about what comes next.

I'm very interested in creating gardens for hospitals, care homes and similar settings, so this course was the perfect choice! Well-planned course material that was easy to follow and surprisingly comprehensive. There are a few designs to complete during the assignments, which are a mixture of theory and practical work. Can't say enough about the tutors, who were always helpful and happy to answer questions. Can definitely recommend!
