Warfighter Gardens aimed at helping veterans, first responders

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A group of people is helping military veterans and first responders who might need a peaceful place to get away.

Ralph Gaskin and Mike Nelson co-founded Warfighter Gardens Fort Wayne.

The goal is to provide a 5-foot by 5-foot garden that can be used by veterans and first responders and their families as a form of self-therapy. It largely caters to those suffering from PTSD, anxiety and other combat or job-related issues.

Saturday, the group kicked off its first area that is home to several gardens. They are located at “The Journey Free Methodist Church,” 3536 Wallen Road.

The gardens are provided at no cost to the individuals who use them.

More details can be found on the group’s Facebook page.
