Helping Veterans Grow and Heal
Established in April of 2018. Our mission is to help veterans and their families grow and heal from the invisible wounds of war by sowing seeds and relationships with others through gardening
The Veterans Garden is NOT a clinical therapy program and has no affiliation with any government or medical organization or facility.
COME GROW WITH US
The Veterans Garden is an outdoor space where veterans and their family come to learn, acquire and develop cultivation skills, rest, relax and most importantly heal. Whether you want to learn about cultivating a garden, get out of the house and enjoy the sunshine or just relax in the shade, the garden is a picturesque location. It is a great opportunity for veterans to venture outdoors and experience land and nature in new found ways while also finding solace and peace in our tranquil garden.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO OUR VETERANS GARDEN. THE HELP YOU PROVIDE COULD SAVE A LIFE.
We are a registered 501 (c) (3) non profit run entirely by volunteers and other veterans.
The founder of Veterans Garden, Inc., Anne Marie Mucci knows all too well the impact PTSD and TBI can have. “I have personally seen the devastation and despair these debilitating conditions can have on our returning soldiers. My son was in the Marines and served in Iraq. A fellow Marine in his company suffered so badly after returning home that he finally took his own life. The Veterans Administration is overwhelmed in trying to adequately assist these injured veterans. I feel that we need to do better, we can do better, and we must do better. These soldiers have given so much. Even if we reach just one veteran, then our efforts are worth it.”
WE WANT TO HELP MORE VETERANS. IF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO YOU THINK MAY BENEFIT FROM THERAPEUTIC GARDENING PLEASE TELL THEM ABOUT US! AS JASON LANDRY, PRESIDENT OF THE VETERANS GARDEN AND FORMER MARINE SAID, “WHY NOT GIVE IT A TRY AND SEE IF YOU LIKE IT? IF YOU LIKE IT GREAT, IF NOT NO WORRIES.” AT THE VERY LEAST THERE ARE OTHER VETERANS, THEIR FAMILIES AND VOLUNTEERS THAT MAY HAVE GONE THROUGH WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH.
