Therapeutic gardening for Veterans and First Responders injured in the Line of Duty and/or those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS)

At A Glance

FrontLine Gardens supplies participants with a raised or elevated bed garden at their personal residence. But we don’t stop there, as each garden comes with a custom therapy program in partnership with a vet center or a law enforcement trauma therapist.

FrontLine Garden’s unique program provides our participants complete privacy as they navigate through our application process. An applicant’s personal information (such as their name, picture, or testimonies) will be shared only with the applicant’s request and express permission.

In 2020, we started Frontline Gardens to give back to our Heroes who served on the frontlines of the battlefield, and for those law enforcement officers on the frontlines here at home.

“Frontline Gardens gifted me a garden in Sept 2021.  Taking care of my lawn and planting flowers  has always been great therapy for me but this garden has taken things to a whole other level. It has given me a purpose, a reason to wake up, something to look forward to. Every step…. From Turing the soil, planting the seed, watching things grow and then harvesting enough food to feed my family and friends ….. has done things for me that years of therapy and multiple medications couldn’t do. I’ve tried one on one therapy, group therapy, countless medication “cocktails”, focusing on objects etc and nothing can compare to what this garden has done for me and my family.  I’ve dealt with anger issues, depression, anxiety and hopelessness  for many years …… up until the day I received my garden. Getting my hands dirty, standing barefoot in the soil and watching all my hard work flourish…. Helps me stay grounded. Gives me something to occupy not only my hands but it occupies my mind and thoughts. I am not sure where I would be without “finding freedom” (which is what I named my garden). It’s a place I can go to anytime of the day and find peace within myself.”
