RI Veterans Home
480 Metacom Avenue (Rt. 136) | Bristol, RI 02809
The RI Veteran’s Home has been a URI Master Gardener project since 1998. In 2017 we will move plants, perennials and pots from old garden beds to the new RI Veterans Home in the late spring. Volunteers will be working in the greenhouse, potting shed, nursery with continual hands-on educational experiences with veterans and their families. Volunteers will be identifying plants that will be moved from the existing 18 gardens, to be placed around the newly landscaped property during this summer, and then maintaining the grounds. We meet and work Monday mornings, but also work Saturday and Sunday during the growing season with hands on opportunities to engage veterans and their families in gardening activities during these days.
