Veterans

PTSD is very real. Veteran suicide and homelessness are tragedies that can be turned around. Planting and cultivating a garden is a very healing process. It is  scientifically proven that gardening is especially successful for individuals suffering from PTSD, depression and other mental issues. As our garden grows, participants get to eat what they grow which has powerful physical health benefits. Our Culinary program offers skilled certification for gainful employment.
