Veteran’s Garden grows roots for healing

WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (WLNE) — According to the Veteran’s Administration, every day 22 veterans take their lives. For the men and women who have served the United States, PTSD has a strong hold on their lives. But for some, hope has come in the form of a budding garden in West Bridgewater.

What began as a small plot of land has grown into four aces, tens of thousands of seeds, a waterfall, a bee colony and the power of shared experiences. From pumpkins to peppers, bush beans to sunflowers, the veteran’s along with their families and volunteers have transformed the land and their lives. 

The Veteran’s Garden is open to all vets and their families and hosts a variety of events from BBQs to firepit nights. If you’re interested in volunteering with the garden, reach out to them on Facebook.
