Howdy all,

We’ve had an exciting few weeks recently. Firstly, we have a new staff member. A HUGE welcome to Christian! Christian is already the favourite staff member because he is Swiss and brings back Swiss chocolate for us. No one can compete with that. Secondly, he’s a counselling psychologist and just an all-round brilliant guy really. We’re lucky to have him and look forward to working with him :D

Secondly, Horatio has been recovered. This has obviously been fantastic news for me personally, but also for the many, many supporters that Horatio has ent...

Hello Everybody!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog and I would try and come up with a good excuse for that, but I won’t because the only reason is that it’s been too sunny to sit inside unless ABSOLUTELY necessary.

But for now, I’m being a good horticultural therapist and sitting in the office looking out at a beautiful blue sky and itching to go and poke about in a flowerbed, so I’ll make this quick.

Everything has been going brilliantly here – we have veg coming out of our ears (feel free to come and grab some) and a bunch of newbies who have re...

Happy Wednesday everyone. It’s blimmin’ parky up here innit? This time three weeks ago we were sitting in t-shirts in the polytunnel and now we’re all sporting snazzy hats and quilted jackets thanks to our anonymous friend from the military. Whether they will be enough to keep us functioning in the dark depths of a Scottish winter remains to be seen…

It’s been a really busy few weeks here at the garden – hence the lateness of this blog, sorry – my bad. We have a number of new veterans coming to join our tribe and some new volunteers too. Welcome to Kev, K...

Good afternoon Aaall,

It’s Friday and everyone here at DTG is pottering around in the garden happily. The rabbits are rabbitting, the birds are birding and I’m sitting on the heater watching a flurry of deadheading and weeding.

We’ve had an interesting couple of weeks which I’ll tell you all about but first, I’d like to give a MASSIVE welcome to our new volunteer Adam, who is now modelling our snazzy “one size fits none” fleece (as Michael says). We’re lucky to have you Adam and thanks for all the deadheading!

Also, happy belated birthday to Meggan, for who...

It’s a miserable morning outside with mist clinging to our office window and damp that seems to be seeping into my bones, but our garden is still lovely and cheerful. I can just make out the flowers through the grey.

Firstly wanted to say thank you to Danny and John at Homebase for surprising us with a lovely new storage whatsit for our garden. We're so lucky to have your support! 

Yesterday we had a great session with the exception of missing a couple of our guys who were off. We are really excited to welcome a new veteran into our fold, who seemed...

Hello everyone,

The sun is shining (temporarily), the bees are buzzing and Michael is waging war on the calendula. 3Para (3P) is stalking around soggily (I accidentally got him with the hose) looking for things to do and if we’re not careful, he’ll find a project and be finished before we know what it is! So I’ll make this quick.

This week has been amazing. On Monday, Annie and I went to Dobbies all prepared to blow our Dobbies donation of £600 on plants, but we must be a little rusty as we still have some money left over. We walked out with a large amount...

Welcome to the Dundee Therapy Garden Blog! We are a brand new mental health charity, set up to work with military veterans and veterans of the uniformed services, but you can read all about us here. There’s been a lot going on for Annie, Alec, Michael and me recently as we work towards getting everything ready for our first veterans. Having come back from our Christmas holidays (semi) refreshed, we launched ourselves into recruiting volunteers and we can now announce that we have half a dozen willing and able bods to help us. These brilliant new ad...
