An inspiring video about the ability of plants to support the healing of veterans.

Since 2007, the charity Gardening Leave has championed the healing power of plants to bring relief to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety.

But the tie between plants and the military goes back much further than that and is now being explored in a new art exhibition.

My friend Linda McDonald contributed her painting of a Tea Plant to this project. Linda is an amazing person who does an incredible amount for charity. You can see more of her work here:
