Growing Healthy Veterans is committed to providing programs to assist Veterans both within and outside the VA that can be replicated across the Country.

Studies have shown that working with the soil and growing living plants are extremely therapeutic for veterans suffering from war-related disorders, Growing Healthy Veterans programs and projects are helping to provide that healing.

We are engaged in creating spaces where Veterans and Active Duty Military and their families can heal from traumas that often lead to isolation, drug or alcohol abuse, and suicide while finding the camaraderie of being with others who have a greater understanding of their experiences.

Our gardens offer Veterans and Active Duty Military a healing process from working with the soil to growing healthy food for themselves and their communities. In addition, by having the gardens open to members of the local communities, Veterans are aided with their reintegration into society.

There is also the added advantage that our Country needs a million new farmers, so our horticultural training will help to provide Veterans with various employment opportunities in sustainable agriculture.
