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 got to talk with the Bexhill Garden and Allotment Society. A great group but still finding many that did national service that don’t realise they are veterans. One member sadly past last year blind in one eye but never got help as he never classed himself as a veteran. https://t.co/pfnIlBjT9P VeteransGrowth photo
