Therapeutic horticulture and community agriculture (TH/CA) involves the use of plants, gardens and agricultural practices in meeting community development goals.

Using plants, gardens and agriculture as community development tools has a history going back to at least the 1970's with therapeutic horticulture and community agriculture currently being actively used across a diverse range of countries and cultures including Korea, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, the USA, Italy, and Sydney, Australia!
