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.

    Amazing hand crafted sign made by a veteran as a thank you to all the team of VG for the work with him over the last year. What I will point out is a gift from the CEO to this HMS Hermes vet of an army T-Shirt so he never forget us here. #militarybanter #handcrafted https://t.co/rq0GXwRwbQ VeteransGrowth photo
