    • Abstract:
      Horticultural therapy and therapeutic horticulture are widely known therapeutic strategies within mental health, despite the fact that formal research in this field is scarce. This research, a collation of four papers, assessed the changes in depression severity, anxiety, positive affects, perceived stress, perceived attentional capacity, and rumination in major depressive disorder patients, and the existential issues during a twelve-week therapeutic horticulture programme in a 'Green Care' farm (farms in Norway) context. It also aimed to identify when, during therapy, the most significant changes take place. Moreover, it investigated whether the elements of attention restoration theory, being away, fascination, and group cohesiveness acted as possible active components in therapy. A follow up, after 3 months, was conducted in order investigate the persistence of changes observed. The findings from this research offer some support to claim that therapeutic horticulture can be a beneficial supplementary intervention or programme in clinical depression.
