Veterans Healing Farm

VA Produce Donations

Veterans Healing Farm Mission Statement:

Transitioning from military life back into the civilian sector is a challenge all veterans face. Unfortunately, many veterans lack the tools, support network, and resources needed to meet this challenge.  The results are an alarmingly high rate of veteran suicide, depression, divorce, homelessness, and substance abuse. 

Our mission is to serve our nation’s veterans by growing and donating high-quality fruits, vegetables, and flower bouquets to veterans and their caregivers free of charge. Additionally, we support veterans by offering workshops on innovative gardening techniques and foster a thriving micro-community of veterans and civilians who build deep friendships and cultivate emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

The $20.00 per person donated from the banquet dinner $35.00 cost goes directly to this amazing charity which supports our veterans.

All rally attendees will be asked to bring a thank you card as an acknowledgment of our veteran’s service. A basket will be placed in the lobby for the thank you card collection.
