Our Courses

Veterans can attend either a 2-week residential course, or regular weekly/bi-weekly day sessions. There are a maximum of 12 participants on each course and sessions run from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

Our courses include one-to-one sessions and group work, where we provide Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) to participants. During assessment, individuals’ needs are considered, and the programme tailored to these. Generally, though, the course consists of a combination of mainly physical horticultural activities, alongside additional sessions such as theory-based learning, visits to sites of interests, talks and presentations on pertinent subjects such as horticulture or wellbeing, therapy sessions and social activities.

    Yesterday’s pottery workshop at the farm went really well. These are just a few of the items made. Ages ranged from 6 upwards upwards and what was produced with the air dry clay was amazing. https://t.co/MYIsfrCIzn VeteransGrowth photo

    Just a small selection of our pumpkins this year, the biggest so far must be 55kg.

    This was the welcoming view and background sounds that greater one of our veterans this morning. Turn up the volume! This is why veterans keep returning after a course finishes. That and the tea and banter of course. #Veterans @SussexAFN @VeteranCts https://t.co/Ew9od4aQAK
