The horticulture program brings participants from the community to garden at Eagle Mount. A greenhouse and grow lights allow participants to plant from seed in the winter. The spring planting is always a time of excitement as vegetables and flowers are placed in the gardens. Raised beds allow participants in wheelchairs access and the ability to work the soil.

Working in the garden lets the group get out and enjoy the outdoors as they work with hand tools improving their manual dexterity. During the summer, participants and volunteers tend to the garden and enjoy field trips. As the harvest season comes, the participants enjoy eating the produce they have grown, therapeutic in its own right.
