Veterans’ Growth provides horticultural therapy to veterans facing mental health issues.
Set amidst beautiful Sussex farmland, our site offers a relaxing green space where veterans can come to immerse themselves in nature and learn horticultural skills.
During their time on site, participants socialise with other veterans, gain confidence, knowledge and experience and some go on to find employment within the industry.
The charity also conducts woodland management and green woodwork, alongside Mechanics and Carpentry skills.
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.
