Additionally, horticulture programs allow for those involved to develop skills and form strong relationships with their community. This toolkit explores the connection between community gardens and campus-based sexual violence prevention, describing protective factors related to exposure to nature and tips and skills to incorporate community gardens into primary sexual violence prevention efforts.

Horticulture has been shown to be a useful tool for violence prevention and healing efforts. This toolkit offers:
