We’re delighted to welcome Britain’s best-loved horticultural writer and broadcaster Monty Don as a patron of Veterans Outdoors. The BBC Gardener’s World presenter says, “The work that Veterans Outdoors is doing is both admirable and important. To reconnect with the rhythms of growth and to work with animals and plants nurtures something essential to human wellbeing and I know from personal experience that a direct connection with the natural world can be powerfully healing.” Welcoming Monty to the Veterans Outdoors family, CEO Jeremy Hibbard says “Generations of TV gardeners told us how to do our gardens but Monty was the first to explain why a connection with horticulture is so important. We incorporate so much of what he’s taught us into our everyday work.”
