To provide US Veterans and Active Duty members on a fixed income access to free gardening services at home or within their communities.
We formed Heroic Gardens as a way to honor our military. We are outdoor enthusiasts who have felt the powerful healing that building and existing with a garden can provide.
Often veterans don't have the funds or the know how to get started. That's where we come in. We'll help them obtain access to the knowledge, tools and materials they need. We can even help them design an area of the property. Veterans can have a garden inside or outside of their homes - it's really up to them.
While a garden can provide singular meditative qualities, our gardens are meant to be enjoyed and sustained by and with whomever they choose. That could mean other veterans, their families and friends.
We're about using the land to create something that enables veterans to envision a space that touches their heart. Whether they decide to grow vegetables, or simply to maintain a window box, it will be theirs to own. And they'll contribute to attracting bees, birds, butterflies and other wildlife important to the environment.
Currently, we serve Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Berks. As well as Southeastern New Jersey and Delaware.
We partner with established organizations that are already working with Veterans to provide support so they can focus on their missions. We also work directly with Veterans in their homes.
Your support and contributions will enable us to help US veterans and their families in need of finding peace, right in their own homes.
