BENNINGTON—The Vermont Veterans’ Home is opening a veterans’ community garden on the property of the home. This initiative is to support members of the veteran community in the Bennington area who have a desire to grow their own wholesome organic food but do not have the space at home. On a first come first served basis veterans and their families may sign up for a garden plot to farm free of charge. The Veterans’ Home will prepare the soil and establish individual plots within the garden. The Vermont Veterans’ Community Garden will be available for planting on May 1. If interested contact Jon Endres at 447-6528.
