BALTIMORE - Special needs students from Parkville High School paid a special visit to Talmar Gardens and Horticultural Therapy Center Thursday. The goal -- to encourage the therapeutic benefits of things that come from the soil.
The center uses horticultural therapy in supervised activities that utilize plants and horticultural procedures to improve the social , physical and psychological well-being of all people, regardless of abilities.
It's soil, used to touch the heart.
"I think there's great satisfaction to not only work in myself, in a beautiful therapeutic environment, but seeing kind of the cognizant physical aspects of people being outside, working with plants, with living things," said farm manager Kristyna Hulland.
Plants and vegetables sold at the center are sold to local markets.
