Gardening Therapy

There's a long history of using gardening as therapy following war.  A quick google will pop up dozens of current programs, all geared at offering veterans of military service the opportunity to learn to garden, spaces to garden in, and options for disabled veterans to garden in "less traditional" styles, such as wheelchair accessible beds or beds with seats integrated into them in case of fatigue.  If you are a gardener, and would like to help, it would be a wonderful idea to look into programs in your area that would allow you to mentor a veteran.  Gardening is surely one of the best therapies out there!
