Mission Statement

​TALMAR (Therapeutic Alternatives of Maryland) is dedicated to the mission of enhancing health for all people of all ages and abilities. TALMAR offers an innovative therapeutic environment providing work skills development, vocational, educational and recreational programming in horticulture and agriculture. All programs are designed particularly for individuals with physical, mental or developmental challenges that impact their health and well-being.


TALMAR provides vocational and horticultural therapy programming to youth and adults of all abilities. Both the greenhouses and the cutting gardens provide an environment that enhances self-esteem and allows for the development of practical and marketable work skills. Participants at TALMAR are instructed in the operations of a wholesale floral nursery and receive training in greenhouse management, gardening and landscaping. Year-round seasonal workshops are open to the community and individual and group horticultural therapy sessions are available.

Would you recommend TALMAR, Inc?

by Kathy H. (June 2, 2010)
I brought my class to Talmar throughout the school 2009-2010. They worked in the greenhouse and in the fields. During that time they were able to develop skills not only in the garden environment but socially as well. The staff were always friendly, helpful and artfully instructive. They seemed to put our kids at ease while working there and the feedback from the class was positive as well. I enjoyed watching the students grow as well as the plants they planted!
