Garden Therapy Recovering Homeless Veterans
/This project is specifically to benefit our garden therapy program for the homeless veterans at the US VETS Initiative Veterans Villages Recovery Center at Century Villages at Cabrillo Shelter community in Long Beach, Ca.
Our garden was started by one homeless veteran in 2012 who was growing watermelons in a field of trash between abandoned military barracks set for demolition. The shelter is set in industrial west Long Beach between two oil refineries. OUr garden now employs three veterans and provides food and holiday celebrations for the veterans and children and other homeless shelters on site.
