Training Opportunities

At present, there are no Accredited training courses for Social and Therapeutic Horticulture in Australia. A new body has been set up, called Therapeutic Horticulture Australia (THA) that intends to work towards this. In the meantime, we will list below any training and courses that we know about in Australia. Cultivate NSW runs regular events that often have an educational focus - click here to see our upcoming events.

Do you know about courses or training that are not listed below? Email us and let us know:
