This project is an avenue to allow folks to regain or begin the process of regaining what has been lost in their lives, whether it be home, job, family, dignity. The Garden offers a place of education, structure, acceptance and friendship. All of this takes place in the context of a beautiful organic garden, which not only feeds the body, it feeds the soul. I have seen people rise above their current misfortunes to better themselves in many different ways.
