The benefits of horticulture for mental health

The mission is to provide horticultural therapy to veterans facing mental health issues. The physical and mental health benefits of horticulture have been widely reported. Participants will gain confidence, knowledge and experience and some will go on to find work experience and employment within the industry. The aim of the charity is to provide support and a place on the programme to every veteran in the UK who wants to attend and/or is unable to access help through other channels. If one life is saved as a result of contact with the charity we will call it a success. Any amount of investment will be justified if we can prevent just one suicide, because we believe you cannot put a price on a life.

Today the Veterans got to plant out the shrubs and plants they picked out on our visit to a trade nursery a few weeks ago. As one veterans said “it will grow with the charity, for more veterans to enjoy” thank you @ProvenderTweets for your assistance and great customer service.

As the day draws down and the course is nearly over, we get a little reminder there is always more as a veteran community we can do to help each other. Just the sight of this wonderful rainbow was enough for everyone to stop take a minute and think. #veterans #think #Remembering
