Veterans Therapeutic Gardens promote community involvement and investment by building gardens for local veterans with an emphasis on helping disabled veterans and their families. To actively seek out individuals and businesses within the targeted community, then organize them into the project by asking for their involvement of time, materials and cash donations to build the garden. Our goal is to be the catalyst that begins the process, organizes the committees, promotes the fundraising to finance and build the garden from the ground up. Then ultimately turn the garden over to a group or organization that will nurture it and continue to maintain the community involvement and investment that has been established.
