What we do

Gardening Leave tends to the invisible wounds of conflict by providing horticultural therapy for troubled Armed Forces veterans in walled or enclosed gardens. Started in 2007, the charity has projects at Erskine Hospital near Glasgow, Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, East Acton in London, Auchincruive near Ayr and a new project will open in central Dundee soon. Using gardening therapy, Gardening Leave supports veterans with mental health issues on their journey to good health and their transition to civilian life.
