MAHTN Is Growing HT!
MAHTN is a group of practicing and aspiring horticultural therapists who are avidly and actively dedicated to expanding the acceptance of horticultural therapy as a recognized therapeutic and rehabilitative discipline.
In Oct. 2012, MAHTN, Inc., was formally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the State of New York. This opens the door to a range of initiatives that enable MAHTN to expand both its visibility and offerings as the leading organization in the Mid-Atlantic region for horticultural therapy professionals.
One of the most significant benefits is our ability to improve our financial viability through fundraising, grants and programs that support the interests and professional needs of our members, as well as educating others to the benefits horticultural therapy can achieve.
The best way for each of us to participate in this ambitious goal is by participating in professional development opportunities, conferences, networking, mentoring and collaboration. Our web site, MAHTN.org, is a convenient, interactive complement to our face-to-face activities and serves as a repository for helpful resources, activities and lessons-learned.
As members of MAHTN, Inc., we are committed to the mission of the American Horticultural Therapy Association in building and reinforcing a consistent, credible set of professional standards which will enable us to cultivate a flourishing profession.
