DONATE & HELP US GROW
Rose Garden Angels, inc., begun in 2015, is a non-profit organization which seeks to help veterans suffering from PTSD and their caregivers to heal through horticulture therapy. We do this by teaching them how to grow roses organically from cuttings. We specialize in growing the Old Garden roses that are easy to grow and make flowering shrubs throughout the year that do not need toxic sprays. Each Veteran grower is given all the training and materials to be successful and is set up at their own homes to grow the roses. When the roses are fully grown, the Veteran Grower brings the roses back to the Mother Nursery and gets paid for every rose grown. Then their roses are sold to local Garden Centers who market their roses to the public with posters, brochures, Organic care Instructions and picture tags describing the history of the rose. We use the Homegrown by Heroes National label on all our roses. This cycle of growing and selling assures the sustainability of our program while instilling pride in our Veterans for a job well done. We currently have 10 Veteran Growers and several in other states.
