Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital
Bedford VA

The beautiful VA campus is over 150 acres and we can always use help! Opportunities for you or your service group can include: adopting a flower bed, assist with watering, weeding, designing and planting the gardens for the Veterans and families to enjoy. Outdoor opportunities are seasonal(April to October), but we have a wonderful greenhouse for the offseason. Water the plants, do a special program for Veterans in wheelchairs, trim the plants, etc. If you have a green thumb, or just want to have one, get in touch!
