Veterans' Growth

Veterans' Growth is a charity dedicated to helping ex-service personnel (men and women 18+) who are suffering from mental heath issues. We provide this through social therapeutic horticultural therapy and support at our site. Having your support means we will be in a position to provide help and support and to welcome more veterans.

Introducing our SeedShare project

Introducing our SeedShare project

Nicky, our SeedShare Manager and the team have collected seeds from last years crops of vegetables and flowers and they have been packed into preset amounts ready to be posted out to any veteran who would like them.

Veterans have a list to choose from which Nicky will share with them, so if you know of a veteran who would like to get involved with our SeedShare project please email seedshare@veteransgrowth.org and Nicky will be in touch to tell you more about this project.

Mixture of events happening on site for our Veterans'.

Two weeks are never the same at Veterans' Growth.  We had such a mix of things happening on site a few weeks ago.  One of our veteran groups took part in some sheep shearing activities whilst another veteran continues with his wood work.  He decided to create two soldiers for the front entrance and we love them.  He was proud to inform us that he has been 💯  successful with every cutting he has touched in 7 weeks and we must agree he has a flair for design as his patch looks great too.

Hanging Basket Workshop for both Veterans and Civilians

Hanging Basket Workshop for both Veterans and Civilians

On Saturday 8th May we hosted our first group workshop since the last lockdown.  Adhering to government guidelines, this workshop was outside and limited to 6 places of groups of two only, where we could ensure social distancing and safety at all times.  We opened the workshop up to both veterans', their families and civilians.  Everyone had a fantastic morning and got to take their master piece home with them.  Veterans' Growth supplied all the plants, materials and tools and all we asked for was a small donation.  We hope you enjoy the photos as much as our participants enjoyed their morning creating their hanging baskets.
