Gardening Leave is a charity that focuses on the mental health of veterans.

Gardening Leave uses horticultural therapy to support troubled veterans on their journey to good health and their transition to civilian life. They offer professionally conducted, individualised, goal-oriented treatment sessions to maximise a veteran’s physical, psychological and social strength, and enhance general health and wellbeing.

Gardening Leave has projects in London at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and an outreach project in East Acton, plus projects at Erskine near Glasgow and Auchincruive near Ayr. A further project will be opening in Dundee during 2015.
