Veterans for Community Services is working to establish a community garden on land donated by an elementary School in Atlanta GA.  The garden will serve as a source of food for disabled veterans and a school gardening program.

This project is designed to train youth in gardening techniques and marketing skills to sale produce to the community.  It will allow our organization to grow food for veterans to supplement the VCS food program.  More importantly, it will keep our youth in a safe environment designed to reduce crime.  Interaction between the youth and veterans will reconnect the generations by working and sharing knowledge together. 

 

Please make a donation to this project to enable VCS to purchase tools, seeds, bedding plants, soil, lumber to build plots, tillers, wheel barrels and fencing to protect the garden.
