Here at TALMAR (Therapeutic Alternatives of Maryland), we serve people of all ages and abilities with a focus on those with special needs and disabilities. Our goal is to contribute to the mind, body, and spirit of the individual. TALMAR is a leading provider of horticultural therapy programming throughout Maryland.

Our horticultural programming is beneficial to everyone from seniors to veterans and special needs organizations. The goal of our organization is to assist participants in learning new skills, provide education and contribute to general mental and physical wellness through horticultural activities. TALMAR accommodates individuals and groups for one hour sessions with up to 6 participants. To schedule our services for either individual or group sessions, please email Tanya Ray or contact us at 410-825-2020.


TALMAR is pleased to be working in partnership with the Veterans Administration in a pilot program that trains veterans in Sustainable Agriculture practices through both classroom and practical experience. Our program begins February 11th 2019 and will run the length of our growing season. We are excited for this new program and look forward to growing with our veterans. For more information on our program, please contact our Veteran Instructor Kate Long by email or call 410-825-2020.
