Are you a business owner that has a service that could benefit the garden? Do you have able hands? Or do you just want to play in the dirt? We want your help and so do Veterans. Contact us today and let us know when you’d like to volunteer.
FSP offers 4 beds for yearly lease. Grow fresh fruit and vegetables for yourself while enjoying the great outdoors! Contact us and learn more about leasing a garden box for a Veteran.
