Project GROW (Gardening, Rehabilitation, Outreach, Wellness)
Involve veterans and the community with Aeroponic Tower Gardening (no dirt, space-saving and water-saving technology) meant to develop purposeful activity and relationships for the benefit of self and others.
Use gardening time to practice mindfulness and behavioral therapy techniques. Share experiences to build relationships. Practice positive thinking and uplifting affirmations (no belittling or bullying allowed).
Provide food to schools, churches, and other organizations and share information about the tower gardening. Use this time to learn about audience needs, share resources and how veterans can help.
Whole-Health is the goal of Project GROW. Through tower gardening, education and activities for physical, mental, spiritual, nutritional, and financial strengthening are included throughout the gardening season. Strengthen relationships that are safe and community oriented.
