BENEFITING: OPERATION LOVE OUR VETS
We have VA approval to design, install and maintain organic, therapeutic, fruit and vegetable gardens for inpatients at Menlo Park, VA Hospital. Our focus is on sustainable, organic gardens which inpatient Veterans can learn about growing their own veggies, harvest, then learn to cook same. This program will provide both therapeutic (working the soil), informational (organic gardening, worm casting, rainwater collection), nutritional (organic, fresh fruits and veggies) as well as life skills with follow up cooking classes.
