Are you a veteran interested in gardening or horticulture?

The Cublington Horticulture project is a new initiative set in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside, a plot of land has been dedicated to the project with open air spaces for raised bed projects and a shed and greenhouse for inside potting. Veterans will be supported by a Horticulture lead to develop new skills and get their horticulture projects up and running

The project is currently open to all Veterans accommodated with Amicus Trust with transportation too and from the project. With plans for a wild flower and recreation areas as well as the allotment, the project will provide a sanctuary for people who spend time there we need ideas and engagement to bring the project to life! 

The project aims to ; 

  • Teach new horticulture skills
  • Improve mental well being
  • Alleviate boredom 
  • Grow nutritious food
  • Support development of your own horticultural ideas
  • Reduce isolation by bringing you together with other veterans. 

The Horticultural Project can work well alongside support delivered by the Amicus Trust Veteran Mental Health worker for any veteran who wishes to engage.
