HEAL 

Horticulture & Equine Active Learning

HEAL is a curriculum-based horticulture and equine learning experience that offers 1-day or multi-week programs. HEAL strives to create unique outdoor education and wellness learning opportunities that include fresh air and hands-on experiences.

Why Horses & Horticulture?

 

Taking advantage of all we have to offer on our 200 acre property, HEAL combines and highlights our equine and horticulture programs into one unique experience. Horses, plants, and the beautiful natural surroundings are great reminders of mindfulness, teaching participants to slow down and be present. Touching a horse and digging your hands in the soil are both rich opportunities for learning and may be linked to relieving stress and developing a greater sense of connection.
