..... Our adaptive horticulture services have been developed based on the intrinsic healing properties of horticulture therapy. As a standing member of The American Horticulture Therapy Association,"I believe strongly that a huge population is ready to be reached with the services I provide". Bridget Guzzi

Services are designed for those with and without special needs. There is much room for everyone when it comes to horticulture.

An overview of benefits includes the strengthening and positive development of self and relations with family and others, a provision of  working in a positive holistic grounding environment, a warm reach to those who may require adaptive assistance while entering the world of horticulture, the placement of someone who
cares with a loved one you may not have access to due to distance, the encouragement and development of physical, spiritual and cognitive abilities and perhaps, of most importance, the educational introduction and healing aspects of gardening and botanical arts.

During my studies in horticulture therapy, a very hands on rewarding time, I found the special meaning behind all that we can do in a natural setting.
