Suffering In Silence Has Gone On Too Long

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, each day there are around 22 veterans who commit suicide. What’s more, they report that veterans’ suicides account for 14%of the suicide deaths in the country, while they only make up 8% of the adult population.

Through the Veterans Garden, we hope to utilize our communities experience, strength and hope to educate and assist veterans and their families. In order to bring stability, growth and peace to our veterans we partner them with others who have had similar experiences  and continue to overcome their struggles. However, the first step is often the hardest and that is asking for help. To take this first step is truly an act of courage.

BE PART OF THE CULTIVATION PROCESS 

You choose what activities you would like to be part of during the growing season:

Spring and fall cleanup
Seeding, planting, weeding
Setting up for activities 
And of course harvesting!

We recommend that you come to the garden at least 1 day a week to tend your own garden. No gardening tools or experience needed. 

COME WATCH THE GARDEN GROW FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE EACH WEEK

Produce from harvesting will be available to Veterans who assist with gardening activities and come to the garden on a regular basis. We provide fresh vegetables to the Veterans Kitchen in Fall River weekly. Abundant produce will be given to needy and home bound local Veterans. Let us help you while also helping others!
