The Q&A Archives: Horticulture Therapy

Question: I am going to give a speech within the next few days on theraputic gardening. I know that gardening can lower your blood pressure, but I don't know where to find more written documentation. Can you help me? Liz Bell Old Orchard Beach, ME

Answer: Contact the American Horticulture Therapy Association, Gaithersburg, MD 21057, (301) 948-3010 for information on the benefits of gardening. Also, National Gardening magazine's Janury 1997 issue has a story of the health benefits of gardening. Check it out at your local bookstore or in our Compuserve Gardening Forum (Go Garden)..
