In the spring of 2011 Recovery Ventures Corporation initiated a Horticulture Therapy Program as another form of treatment provided by the program. Simply put, Horticulture Therapy is the use of plants and gardens to promote individual, mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual well-being. It is designed to integrate knowledge of basic botany with hands-on work in the greenhouses and the farm. As the crops are harvested they are prepared for retail sale to the community and local restaurants. As a result, this program also contributes to the self-supporting mission of Recovery Ventures through the income generated by the produce sales.
